Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

A lorry driver suf­fered hor­rific in­juries in Ben­i­tachell on Wed­nes­day morn­ing when his arms be­came trapped un­der a skip on the back of his ve­hi­cle. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened at around 09:15, and due to the se­ri­ous­ness of the ac­ci­dent, an emer­gency he­li­copter was called to the scene, along with an in­ten­sive care am­bu­lance team. Doc­tors at­tend­ing to him de­scribed his arms as be­ing ‘flat­tened’. The 52 year old was trans­ferred by the he­li­copter to La Fe Hospi­tal near Va­len­cia, but then had to be moved to a spe­cial or­thopaedic trauma unit in Manises. He was re­ported to be in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion.
