Accidental death in Berlin: according to the emergency doctor: climate activists have not prevented the care of cyclists

According to a report in the "Süddeutsche Zeitung", the climate blockade in Berlin should have had no impact on the emergency care of a cyclist who has since died and who was run over by a concrete mixer on Monday. The newspaper referred to an internal memo from the fire department on Friday. Accordingly, the emergency doctor should have decided anyway that the concrete mixer should not be lifted with a special vehicle.

The special vehicle was stuck in traffic due to a roadblock by activists from the Last Generation group. The Berlin police therefore filed criminal charges against two climate activists for, among other things, failure to provide assistance. The federal government condemned it on Friday if a form of protest "takes risks for others into account".

According to information from the newspaper, the emergency doctor should not have been hindered by the traffic jam and have taken care of the accident victim. You briefly considered having the concrete mixer lifted. That "would probably have taken longer and the medical situation would have gotten worse," the newspaper quoted from the note. The concrete mixer should move with its own engine power.

Even if "other technical options had been available with rescue vehicles or cranes, this was the right approach." The emergency doctor "clearly stated that she would have opted for this method immediately if other technical options were available, such as rescue vehicles or cranes," according to the report.

The three-page note was signed by the medical director of the rescue service in Berlin and sent to Interior Senator Iris Spranger (SPD). The cyclist died in the hospital on Thursday evening. The Berlin fire department did not want to comment on the newspaper report on Friday.
