Halenkov: A tree fell on the man, a helicopter hit

On Friday afternoon, a tree fell on a man near the village of Halenkov in the Vsetín region. People immediately called for help. “Units of professional firefighters from the Vsetín and Valašské Meziříčí stations were immediately sent to the site, as well as reinforcements of volunteer firefighters from the villages of Halenkov and Karolinka,” said firefighters.

Firefighters, climbers who are trained for similar interventions in difficult terrain, also set out with them. A rescue helicopter was also activated. “After a complicated arrival at the scene, one injured person was confirmed. The ambulance service decided on air transport, so the firefighters secured the landing place of the helicopter, which transported the man to the hospital after the initial treatment, ” firefighters added.

The quickest way to quickly pick up a man was to use a helicopter. He is wearing a crane, thanks to which the rescuer can lower himself to the injured person, secure him and then lift him back on board with the help of a rope, transfer him to a bed and then transport him to the hospital.

“A tree fell on the man during the felling, he was conscious all the time, his neck collar was on because he complained of back pain. Subsequently, he was transferred to a vacuum mattress and transported to a hospital in Ostrava,“Rescue spokesman Jakub Omelka told Blesk.
