83-year-old woman dies in Javea ecoparque


AN 83-year-old woman of German nationality died last week in Javea when she fell down a set of steps at the ecoparque.

The woman had visited the ecoparque to deposit some green garden waste. There are steps to access the various bins which are of fair height and the woman lost her footing and fell.

The woman, who lived with her husband in a chalet on the Balcon del Mar urbanisation, was found by a young man who saw her lying motionless on the ground.

The young man called the emergency services and the local police of Javea and an ambulance (SVB) with a doctor from the health centre soon attended the scene. Several Guardia Civil officers also arrived.

The ambulance took the woman to a parking lot in the nearby Guardia Park urbanisation, where a 112  helicopter was waiting to transport her to hospital. The doctor managed to initially stabilise the woman but she required resuscitation again and died shortly after.
