A total of 38 people have been rescued from risky situations on Monday; no dead or missing persons were reported following the blizzard and heavy snowfall that hit some of Romania’s regions, the Ministry of Internal Affairs informed in a release remitted to Agerpres on Monday afternoon.
According to centralized data, in Braila County, a tracked vehicle operated by the Braila Inspectorate for Emergencies (ISU) took a pregnant woman from the village of Tataru – Dudesti commune, handing her over to the County Ambulance Service.
“In Galati, a car got stuck in the snow on County Road 254 near Ivesti Calmatui, and the passengers were taken over by an ISU crew. Fast response measures were also ordered in Ialomita County for the rescue of several people left stranded by the snow in Sapunasi and Andrasesti,” reads the release.
The document also states that an action is underway in Tulcea County, where two ambulances got trapped in the snow.
“One of them carries 3 people requiring dialysis, the other one a pregnant woman. Intervention forces are heading for this area with a snow gritter. Yesterday, exactly in order to avoid this kind of situations for the people who require constant medical care, more than 300 persons requiring dialysis were transported, with their consent, to accessible areas,” adds the cited release.
