Edgar, a little boy with second and third-degree burns on his face, was rushed to Texas to be treated at the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston.
The minor, who suffered an accident last Friday December 1 that left him with burns on his face, was accompanied by his father Luis Fernando Huh Huchim.
Although at the beginning, his transfer to the Agustín O’Horan clinic had been required, the intervention of the Municipal DIF achieved the pertinent steps for the Michou y Mau Foundation to intervene in the case of the Colonia Yucatán family.
This foundation in turn contacted Shriners, who began the procedures to have the first contact with the medical staff of the San Carlos Hospital.
They provided little Edgar with special patches, before beginning his transfer in a Yucatan Government ambulance to San Carlos, where he later waited to fly to Texas and be treated.
The Shriners Hospitals for Children of Galveston, is sending the flight from Texas with specialized medical personnel and equipment to care for the child.
The transfer of the minor was scheduled until 4 p.m. on Monday, December 4. However, there was a delay of two hours, which generated distress in the mother and family of the minor, who did not leave the hospital.
With the support of Dr. Adrián Cepeda Cutis, director of the clinic, the procedures were streamlined and with all the health protocols. The child was taken out of the ambulance and was asking for his parents every minute. All expenses are borne by the foundations and the return was expected to depart at 10 pm from the Mérida airport. He specified that it is unknown how long the child can be there since everything will depend on how he evolves.
