They save the life of a child on the AP-7 in Mont-roig
Never before have a truck fire and a blocked highway been synonymous with good news. However, the incident recorded this Wednesday morning at kilometer 273 of the AP-7, in Mont-roig del Camp, has allowed the Generalitat Fire Department to save the life of a 13-year-old minor who was drowning and whose life hung by a thread.
As confirmed by Mossos and Bombers sources, the vehicle was traveling south on the AP-7 shortly after 9 a.m., the car stopped on the motorway to ask the Bombers and Mossos for help, who were in the opposite direction turning off the declared fire of a refrigerated truck that caught fire minutes after 7 this morning.
Firefighters have immediately gone to the car where the minor was and Mossos has cut off the highway in both directions, one due to the fire in the truck and the other for medical assistance.
While performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the minor, the SEM has been notified, which has activated the medicalized helicopter to go to the accident site as soon as possible. Resuscitation has managed to revive and stabilize the child who had choked and could not breathe. The situation was delicate and once his breathing and vital signs had recovered, he was taken by helicopter to the Joan XXIII hospital.
Once the helicopter with the minor has taken off, the road to the south has been gradually opened. Possibly, the coincidence of Bombers and Mossos at that point have saved the life of this minor.
On the other hand, the tasks of extinguishing the fire and extracting the truck continue their course. The fire would have originated in a wheel and from there to the load.
