A foreign tourist entered a cardiac arrest this Thursday, at 11 am, at Ponta de São Lourenço, in the Caniçal.

In a few minutes, the nearby EMIR and the Municipal Firefighters of Machico were able to revive the man and transport him with vital signs to the hospital.

The unusual thing about the situation was that the man was alone in a somewhat isolated place, with no means of transport, and had no identification document with him.

The man therefore arrived at the hospital without anyone searching for him since there was also no way for the authorities to contact a relative because of the absence of documents.

Well done for the authorities for arriving so quick, and maybe a lesson for all who walk along, have some kind of id on you.
