A cleaning worker in Madrid is transferred in serious condition to the hospital due to heat stroke

The Samur-Civil Protection has transferred this Tuesday in serious condition to the Hospital October 12 a cleaning worker after suffering a heat stroke in Madrid.

“This is a 58-year-old employee who has suffered a heat stroke on Algete street”, reported Emergencies Madrid on his Twitter account.

The extraordinary heat wave that has hit Spain since July 10 has not given up and has claimed the lives of numerous people, such as the woman who died on Monday afternoon as a result of heat stroke when she was in her Madrid housing.

On Friday of last week, a 60-year-old cleaning employee died as a result of heat stroke while working in Puente de Vallecas, while another 58-year-old worker died on Saturday after suffering cardiac arrest caused by the intense temperatures that were recorded in a warehouse in Móstoles where he worked.

The Carlos III Health Institute estimates 510 deaths attributable to the high temperatures recorded in the first seven days of the heat wave, which correspond to the period from July 10 to Saturday 16.
