“The control center alerted the ASB-Gaaden ambulance,” said a spokesman for the Samariterbund: “Our colleagues carried out the first aid and, due to the severity of the injuries, decided that evacuation by emergency helicopter was necessary. Therefore, Christophorus 9 was asked for. “

In addition, the paramedics also alerted the Perchtoldsdorf volunteer fire brigade for support. Because the patient was lying in a hard-to-reach place. Police officers, paramedics and Florianis had to carry the woman around 200 meters through partly steep terrain to the landing site of Christophorus 9 after the emergency medical first aid. The helicopter landed in a field in Vienna-Liesing. Then the 58-year-old was flown to a hospital.
