EAA flies Barcelona attack victim home

Luxembourg Air Rescue reports that on 11 September, one of its plane crews repatriated a victim of the Barcelona terror attack. The Belgian citizen was hit by the attacker’s van and sustained serious injuries. Her condition dictated that she could only be flown to her home country with intensive care treatment en route. She was therefore taken to a Belgian hospital by Luxembourg Air Rescue onboard a fully equipped air ambulance plane.

Previously, Luxembourg Air Rescue transported a young French couple, who had received multiple traumatic injuries in the attack, back to France on 24 August.

Luxembourg Air Rescue highlighted that it has previous experience with airlifting the victims of terrorist attacks. In June 2015, the organisation repatriated several tourists following the attack in Tunisia.
