DDAS, 1994, Mozambique, victim inattention, Type 72, AP
On the day of the accident the victim felt sick and had fainted previously but had refused to see the medic because he was afraid of losing his job. He became dizzy and stepped in front of his end of lane marking stick. He stepped on a Type 72A and suffered injuries to his toes at 08:00. Immediately after the accident he apologised to those attending him for having stepped over his stick. A fortuitous medevac by helicopter was possible and the victim was picked up at 08:25. At 09:30 he arrived at Chimoio where he was taken by ambulance to the Italian army field hospital (ONUMOZ).
