In Praski Park, a man was kneeling with his head in the snow. This alarmed a woman passing by and called the services. It turned out that the man probably fainted. He was hypothermic. He was transported to hospital.
At a quarter of an hour after 8 a.m. on Sunday, December 10, city guards from the 6th Regional Department received a report about a man behaving strangely in Praski Park. The patrol intervened.
– The man was found several minutes later at the back of the closed bear enclosure, where he was kneeling on the ground with his head in the snow. This could have indicated that he was drunk, but it turned out that the man was not under the influence of alcohol, but had lost consciousness. He was very hypothermic, shivering, and his statements were incoherent, the city guard said in a statement. As added, the man could not say what happened or how he got to this place.
The man was taken to hospital
City guards placed the man in a police car, where he was covered with a thermal blanket, a chemical heater and a cup of warm drink were given to his hands. The officers called an ambulance.
As they said in a statement, around 9.30 a.m. the man was handed over to rescuers, who confirmed that hypothermia was life-threatening. He was taken to hospital.
The guards emphasize that if it had not been for the reaction of the resident of the capital who called the emergency number 986, a tragedy could have occurred. – Winter is just beginning – let’s not be indifferent to the fate of other people – they appealed.
