First sun stroke victim on Condado. Please be careful
The weather advisories are out in Murcia as the weather heats up to 40 degrees..in the shade.
Today Condado De Alhama has had it´s first heat stroke victim..a lady was taken to hospital after taking a leisurely bike ride this morning at 11am. Luckily, shaking and faint the lady and her husband made it to the Clover bar for help..behind the bar working a bar shift was Kaz a F:A:S:T member from Camposol who was able to help and stabilize the lady until the ambulance arrived to take her to hospital. David from Condado Excursions accompanied her husband as he was not allowed to travel in the ambulance with his wife.
The sunshine is beautiful and many of us cannot get enough of the rays but we need to take care and precaution when taking exersize outside. It is not possible for you to carry the amount of water your body will need to stay healthy and hydrated in the heat. If playing golf, use a buggy, it will offer you shade and an opportunity to carry water. Do not jog during the day, not even in the mornings. Save jogging for the evening hours after the sun sets. The same goes for bike riding. Sunbathing can also be dangerous, do not fall asleep in the sun and wake anyone you see sleeping…even if they grumble. Your body will overheat quickly.
Enjoy the pools, they are all cool and they are an excellent way to enjoy the heat. Children are vulnerable, keep the water flowing… drink plenty of fluids. (Water)
These steps should be taken all summer even on days that do not come with a heat warning..remember the sun is coming every day, the days of sunshine are long so take the rays easy and have a safe holiday.
We wish the lady a fast recovery and quick return to Condado.
