SALVAMED laments the sudden death of 14yo Comando de Salvamento first responder Eric Beltrán. On April 10th, 2016 Erick was in uniform and on shift waiting to go out on emergencies in Quezaltepeque when two individuals entered and shot him. Our prayers for our brothers and sisters of Comandos de Salvamento and also to Erick’s family. SALVAMED will continue to support the mission of CDS to offer EMS services to all people in need even though El Salvador is currently the murder Capitol of the world.
The U.S. Embassy has recognized his work and sacrifice as has numerous media outlets in Country.
