Heartbreaking

According to doctors, 17-year-old Kamil died on Friday, after suffering serious injuries in a car accident. His father has agreed that the teenager’s organs should be donated for transplantation. Kamil’s mother, however, refuses to accept that he has passed away and demands that the death certificate is annulled, so that she can move her son to another medical facility for treatment. For the last few days, a group of people who knew Kamil has been demonstrating in front of the hospital in which the 17-year-old died. The protesters do not believe that their friend is brain-dead and say that his doctors are too eager to go ahead with the transplants. According to friends of Kamil, he is about to be “murdered for his organs”, which is why they “came to make sure that the doctors knew that someone was watching”. Kamil’s father says that even though he understands his ex-wife’s position, he believes the doctors when they tell him that nothing can be done for his child. He adds, “If the doctors could transplant Kamil’s organs, they would be able to save other people’s lives, and, in that way, Kamil would live on, his heart beating in another person”. The doctors have assured the mother that no steps would be taken without both parents’ consent.

Eleven Die in Plane Crash

Plane Crash

Plane Crash

Eleven people were killed and one person was injured in a plane crash near Częstochowa on Saturday. The sole survivor is a 40-year-old man. Although his injuries are extensive, he is stable and responsive.  The Piper Navajo, property of a local private parachuting school, was carrying twelve people; it crashed and burst into flames shortly after takeoff. The cause of the accident is as yet unknown, but it has been pointed out that the plane was not meant to carry more than ten people, and not adhering to this restriction could be a factor, as an overloaded plane in combination with high temperatures can sometimes cause engine failure. The first person on the scene, a local resident and a former firefighter, managed to get three people out of the wreckage before the fire engulfed the entire aircraft. The injuries of two of the people were too severe and they died soon after, but the third person survived thanks to the quick intervention of the ex-firefighter. After the fire had been extinguished, it was confirmed that there were nine more people, burnt beyond recognition, inside the wreckage. It is one of the most tragic plane crashes in Poland in recent years.

All it took was a moment for the 5-year-old girl to suffocate on a seatbelt while having playing in the car. The incident took place in Łomnica-Zdrój, Piwniczna. The child was found in the car with a seatbelt twisted around her neck by her grandmother. At first she thought the girl was asleep. However, she noticed that the girl was not breathing, so she called an ambulance immediately. After nearly an hour trying to resuscitate the little girl, paramedics managed to get her breathing going after which they transported her by helicopter to the nearest children’s hospital. Unfortunately, 5-year-old Magda died in hospital. The prosecutor in Muszyna has now begun an investigation into the case. Firstly, he needs to confirm whether strangulation was the only cause of death of the 5-year-old, and then check if her grandmother took adequate care of her granddaughter.

The tragedy took place in Kostrzyn, where a Czech circus troupe arrived to perform several shows. A circus worker went to feed the circus lion but to his complete surprise the lion attacked him. The man lost his left arm, while his right arm was seriously injured. An emergency rescue helicopter had to then take him to a hospital in Gorzów. “It’s more than unusual,” says Marcin Maludy a spokesman for Lubusz province. The tragedy took place on 19 June. The 39-year-old citizen of the Czech Republic who was attempting to feed the lion “wasn’t a lion tamer, but an assistant, employed to help out around the circus,” adds Maludy.

Boy Suffocates in Car

Caution!

Caution!

In Pstrągowa, in the province of Podkarpacie, a 2-year-old boy suffocated after being left unattended in a car for less than four minutes. The child probably opened a window on his own and put his head outside. As he moved, his neck got stuck in the narrowest part of the opening. He was unable to free himself and suffocated in front of his 4-year-old sister, who told their parents that “something was not right” with her baby brother. The tragedy took place late on Thursday afternoon, just after the family came back from church. The children wanted to play in the car a little longer as the adults went inside, leaving little Paweł with his sister for a few minutes. Both parents were sober at the time and are still too traumatised to be interviewed by police. According to prosecutors, all evidence points to it being a tragic accident. The autopsy, conducted on Friday, confirmed that the boy died of suffocation. Prosecutor Zbigniew Wieszczek said that in light of the autopsy results, as well as an examination of the car and the preliminary interviews that have been conducted, no criminal proceedings are likely to be initiated against the parents.

Tragedy

Tragedy

The circumstances and cause of death of a three-year-old girl who was left in a car in a parking lot for eight hours in the town of Rybnik by her father are being clarified. The girl’s father remains in a mental institution after the accident. “It is too early to talk about any charges against him,” said the Deputy District Attorney in Rybnik, Malwina Pawela-Szendzielorz. “The proceedings for involuntary manslaughter of the girl have already been initiated. We are waiting for the results of the autopsy which will be conducted tomorrow,” said the District Attorney. The results of the autopsy will determine whether any charges and what charges the Prosecutor’s Office will bring against him. Malwina Pawela-Szendzielorz has stated that law enforcement services have already inspected the car and the scene of the event. It seems the father was taking his daughter to kindergarten and probably forgot about it and left her in the car for eight hours. After returning to the car, he found his daughter unconscious, but it was too late to help.
