During the day that passed, the State Emergency Service units made 176 on-site visits to eliminate the consequences of enemy attacks. Due to the missile strike in Zaporizhia region, a newborn child was killed. Oleksandr Khorunzhyi, Press Officer of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, told this during the briefing in Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
“During the day, the State Emergency Service units made 176 on-site visits to eliminate the consequences of shelling on settlements by the invaders; two fires were eliminated. Concerning Zaporizhia, a blatant case occurred: the enemy fired missiles at Vilniansk city as a result of which the two-story building of the polyclinic maternity department was hit. At that time, a woman in labor with a newborn child was in the department, as well as a physician. As a result of the attack, a baby born in 2022 – in fact, a just born baby – was killed. Our employees rescued the woman and the doctor from the rubble and referred them to healthcare providers. Regarding their condition, medical workers should be contacted. Preliminary information we have suggests that there is no one under the rubble now,” Oleksandr Khorunzhyi said.
The Press Officer of the State Emergency Service added that now works are underway at the shelling site, which involved 67 employees of the State Emergency Service and 14 units of equipment.
