A 9-year-old boy is in serious condition after having suffered a semi-drowning on La Pinta beach, in the Tenerife municipality of Adeje, as reported by the Canary Islands Emergency Coordination Center, Cecoes-112.
The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon, when emergency services received a call from a lifeguard and mobilized a basic life support ambulance and a medical ambulance to the scene.
When they arrived at the scene, they saw that he had been treated by a person who identified himself as a doctor on the beach, who assessed and provided assistance to the minor.
Staff from the Canario Emergency Service then continued caring for the affected person and transferred him to Hospiten Sur. From there, once stabilized, he was transferred in serious condition by medical ambulance to the Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria University Hospital.
