On Friday, July 3, at the burn Department of Odessa regional medical center died a little Katyusha. Medics desperately fought for the life of the child with burns of the fourth, most complex, and the degree, to save her failed. Because of the lost time.
This was reported by the well-known volunteer Ekaterina Nozhevnikova, head of the charity Fund, which account for hundreds of lives saved.
“History, in fact, our usual… a Small village in the region. (As it became known “FACTS”, the incident happened at Zakharyevskaya district of Odessa region. — Ed.) My mom, a single mother of three children (5, 7, 9 years). Dad, who comes every two years, and then about him not hear anything. Payment from the state 4200 UAH for all children for many children and as a single mother.
Big garden and daily work, there to grow something to eat. A cow that needs milking. And the kids that because of this, most often by themselves…” – describes the situation of the volunteer.
According to her, the girl was playing with matches and it lit synthetic t-shirt. Molten t-shirt was removed from the child with… skin.
However, after a horrendous emergency mother for almost a day did not carry the child to the hospital — he says he collected from the neighbors money… call an ambulance.
“Fast” mother called the next morning. As usual, the explanation that I was broke… every time I want my head against the wall from these explanations will hit. Stories about “scary fast” that won’t take no money, is complete nonsense that spread horror fans that “around — full zrada”. Alas, this is not the first time” — with pain says Nozhevnikova.
When she was hospitalized, she was already in critical condition — 35 per cent of burnt body surface.
On priority medicines for Katya needed 12 thousand hryvnia. In a matter of hours collected 23 thousand. Over night the condition of the little patient deteriorated…
The saddest thing about this tragedy that life is Katusha could have been saved. This at first required very little timely to call an ambulance.
“Once again I want to remind parents that there is an article for aiding and abetting a minor, knowingly being in a life-threatening condition and resulting in severe damage or death. Punishable by a term of 3 to 5 years of imprisonment.
The suffering of the child and maimed the life of a parent, in my opinion, much worse than the “evil” ambulance, which is not called in time”, — concludes the famous volunteer.
Earlier, the “FACTS” reported that in Odessa region the fifth-grader died on the operating table at the district hospital. It turned out that two days the boy was suffering from acute abdominal pain, a supposedly eaten green cherry, however, the mother had first approached the doctor and witch doctor.
Already at autopsy in the stomach of a boy found metal objects (nuts, bolts, screws). But doctors say that the child could have been saved if his time were taken to the hospital.
