Heroism worth a life: Armenian rescuers forge through thick snow to save pregnant woman

pregnant-woman-rescueArmeniaNow  --  The news of heroic action by a group of Armenian rescuers who carried a pregnant woman on a stretcher three kilometers through thick snow is making headlines in Armenian media.

On Tuesday, relatives of a seven-month pregnant, Gyulnara Faroyan, 20, who had an acute kidney disorder, tried to take her from the village of Tchartchakis to the hospital of Aparan (Aragatsotn province) by a tractor, however the tractor was stuck in snow with three passengers.

Gyulnara’s mother-in-law, Zoya Faroyan, told ArmeniaNow that the woman had an acute pain in her kidney and they turned to the village administration asking to open the road with the help of machinery to take Gyulnara to hospital, however, they say it was impossible to clear the way.

The family called the Emergency Situations Ministry of Armenia and rescuers walked a few kilometers to reach their home, as the roads in the village were impassable for vehicles.

“There has never been such a thing in our village or in adjacent villages. Hadn’t the rescuers reached on time I would have lost my daughter-in-law. It was a matter of life, we almost lost our hope,” says Faroyan. The rescuers took the pregnant woman to the interstate highway, where the ambulance was waiting for them.

Nikolay Grigoryan, head of the public relations department at the RA Ministry of Emergency Situations, says that this was a unique case in the history of their rescuers.

“Of course, there were similar situations; however it is a unique case when rescuers walked several kilometers through a hardly passable area,” Grigoryan told ArmeniaNow.

Doctors at Aparan’s hospital say Gyulnara still remains in serious condition. “Had she arrived a few hours later, it would have been hard to save her life. The time of her delivery has not come yet; however, let’s hope that everything will be fine,” says director of the Aparan Medical Center Hayk Shmavonyan.

Very Plausible.Time to think of using at least one Helicopter for the Ministry of Emergency Situations though...
Armenia has the capacity to provide ONE HELICOPTER OR EVEN TWO FOR SUCH LIKE RESCUE OPERATIONS..
USE THEM PLEASE !!!!!
