15 volunteers called on to get a 230 kilo infected Thai woman from the 2nd floor in Bangkok
Last night, 15 rescue workers from Siam Nonthaburi Rescue Foundation had to come to the rescue to transport a 230kg Covid19 patient to a community isolation centre.
The foundation was summoned to a home on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road in Bangkok’s Don Muang district at 9 p.m. to transport a family of three who had tested positive for the Covid19 virus to a community isolation centre where the family will wait on hospital beds.
The family consists of a 65-year-old mother, a daughter and a cousin. Six employees who were first on the scene were unable to get the mother, who lived on the second floor, to the ambulance because she weighed too much.
The employees had to call the headquarters of the foundation to round up nine more men, to bring the Thai down along with necessary rescue equipment.
After the mother was successfully taken to the ambulance, the employees disinfected the house and nearby areas with disinfectant.
A news source revealed that a community isolation centre had previously dispatched an ambulance to the house to pick up the daughter and cousin so they could be quarantined. But the two refused to leave the fat lady alone, as she could barely move and has many underlying health conditions, prompting the centre to call the rescue foundation for help.
