A police officer from PMJ Prague rescued two women from an overturned car on the way home and provided them with first aid
A police officer from a motorized emergency unit on the way out of work rescued two women from an overturned vehicle after a car accident. The car was on fire.
The fact that he wants to help not only at work was shown by a police officer from a motorized emergency unit, who returned late at night from the service to a more than distant home.
On the E442 road at the exit to Dlouhé Mosty, shortly before four o’clock in the morning, he saw an overturned passenger car off the road, from which white smoke rose. He didn’t hesitate, stopped his vehicle immediately, and ran to see if anyone needed his help.
During this time, he dialed an ambulance and put on a speakerphone to guide the rescuer as best he could. When he got to the car, no one called from inside and the vehicle was locked. As heavy smoke billowed from the engine compartment and the engine was still running, he ran into his vehicle for a towing eye, breaking the driver’s side window.
He found a woman in the seat who began to respond to his suggestions, so he helped her out and led her to a safe area. The frightened woman kept saying that her friend was still in the car. The policeman returned to the vehicle immediately, and after removing the ignition keys to eliminate the risk of burns, he found her friend in the passenger seat, who was covered in blood and unconscious. He had already detached himself and, as if in a state of disrepair, had made it as far away from the smoldering car as possible.
He immediately started providing her life functions, but he was on his own all the time, because none of the passing drivers stopped to help as well. They soon arrived at the fire brigade, who continued with the police to provide first aid until the arrival of the emergency services.
Thanks to the excellent work of the police officer and his attention, the victim was saved and prevented from the consequences of accidents, which could have been much worse.
