The Guardia Civil providing public safety services in Cuevas del Almanzora received an alert at around 23:00 hours last Wednesday from the Operational Communications Centre (C. O. C. – 062) informing them that a vehicle had fallen into the channel of the Cuevas del Almanzora reservoir and that the driver was inside.

The officers quickly moved to the scene and located a vehicle practically submerged and gathered information from the people on the scene who informed them that the driver was unconscious inside the vehicle and was not reacting to the calls made from the edge of the canal.

Faced with the risk of the victim not being able to get out of the vehicle, the officers shed part of their uniforms and swam to the vehicle, initially managing to get the victim to react, who in a state of semi-consciousness was transferred by the officers to the bank of the canal, being helped by officers from the Local Police of Cuevas del Almanzora to get him out of the water.
