According to security camera images, around 5:00 p.m. on September 26, the girl was playing in the yard. Then, the baby stood against the wall, right at the automatic gate, looking out onto the street. At that moment, the family's automatic gate closed, rolling over the girl's leg and pressing it against the wall, making her unable to move or breathe, leading to lack of oxygen in the brain.
After about 5 minutes, the family discovered and opened the door to rescue the girl. At this time, the baby fell into a coma , had a purple face and showed signs of stopping breathing. Immediately, the baby was taken to the emergency room by his family.
Doctor Tran Duc Anh, Head of the Department of Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine, Hoan My Dong Nai International Hospital, said the girl was admitted to the emergency room in a state of cyanosis, coma, wheezing, lack of brain oxygen...
The doctor gave the child fluids, oxygen, a tracheostomy, and a diagnosis of traumatic brain injury, chest, abdomen, and limbs; At the same time, do blood tests to detect biochemical disorders that may occur in case of pressure.
Test results showed that the patient suffered from prolonged cerebral hypoxia due to chest compression, which limited breathing. Fortunately, the pressure was not too great, so serious mechanical damage that threatened the patient's life was not detected.
Doctors resuscitated the patient to stabilize his breathing. After about 3-4 hours, the girl's perception showed signs of improvement, she opened her eyes, cried loudly and gradually recognized her family.
The patient's family said that the automatic door that pinched the girl had an anti-jamming sensor. However, in this case the sensor does not work effectively.
Doctors recommend that households using automatic doors should carefully observe obstacles before operating the door; Do not leave the controller within the reach of children; You should install an automatic stop device and alarm when there is an abnormality.
In case a victim is pinned by an automatic door, family members should calm down and quickly release the victim from the pressure. After that, the victim was placed on a hard, well-ventilated, safe floor and quickly called an ambulance to take him to the hospital for treatment.
