The life of a 2-year-old, British child was saved at the Alicante-Elche Airport when he lost consciousness and suffered a fit.
The incident took place at 10.40h yesterday morning in an embarking area. The father had gathered up the unconscious child in his arms and was running for help when he ran into two Guardia Civil policemen.
Apart from the seizure, the child was having breathing difficulties, so one of them grabbed the child and ran to the medical-assistance area of the airport, where the child was revived and his condition stabilised. The child was then taken to the Hospital General de Alicante.
