La Ventana Community Ambulance - It is with great sadness that I need to inform the community of the loss of Gustavo Prieto Mtz (Lupita’s husband). He passed away around 1:50am on Sunday August 21st. He suffered a heart attack, and Lupita did everything she could to try to save his life, but it’s been impossible without an ambulance. Lupita has been without an ambulance for about 4 months now, because she is not getting the help needed to pay for the ambulance repairs again. She is exhausted with this battle. This is such a tragedy, that she has been here for all of us for so many years, helping people in the community and from all over the world by attending them when needed and saving so many lives, but this time sadly she wasn’t able to save her own husband’s life, because she hasn’t been able to afford to get the ambulance fixed, which would have enabled her to take him to the hospital for the treatment that could have potentially saved his life. She has reached out to those who should have the power to help her in this town, but to no avail. This is truly a tragedy, and it is heartbreaking to know what just happened.
Lupita had asked me two days prior to this event to write up a notice to put on the next weekly Ventana View Newsletter and also on the local FB page, to let everyone know in the community that she felt really bad about the fact that she was not able to attend emergencies at this time here in town, due to the fact that she did not have a functioning ambulance anymore, and so to let people know to call 911 in case of emergency, but that also they could still contact her, and that she would then coordinate for an ambulance from outside (Los Planes or La Paz, etc…). And very sadly, two days later, it turned out that she needed an ambulance here in town to save her own husband’s life. So tragic what just happened.
May Lupita find a way to get the help she needs to be able to run the ambulance services here in town again, so that this kind of tragedy doesn’t happen to your family or your loved ones.
I would like to ask to anyone who has the power to help her with this, to please step up now, and help her. This community is growing fast, and it really needs to keep an ambulance service here locally. Let’s not let this tragedy go in vain, and let’s do the right thing by helping our dear and dedicated Lupita for her to be able to continue offering this crucial service for all of us.
Some people have reached out to me in the last couple days, who would like to help. I will be sitting down with Lupita once she feels better and is ready to discuss about this, to see what she needs to make it possible for her to continue offering her service. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or would like to help with this cause, please contact me at: email@example.com and hopefully we can find a solution to keep Lupita and her paramedic team to continue offering this crucial service here in town.
