Medical helicopter lands on Sitges-Vilanova road after man suffers heart attack

Several units of the Medical Emergency Service (SEM) and the local police were deployed at noon on Sunday in Sitges to attend to someone who had suffered a heart attack.

The 47-year-old man, who was next to the El Garrofer campsite, needed urgent medical attention.

Two ambulances rushed to the campsite a few minutes after being called and resuscitated the man. But his condition required a quick transfer to the Bellvitge Hospital, which was carried out via a medical helicopter.

The helicopter landed on the Sitges to Vilanova road, where the local police stopped traffic in both directions so that it could operate easily.
