Mr Barbara Mazzali, regional councilor of Lombardy (Brothers of Italy), went back to talking about the man who had thrown himself into the river for save his dog. The latest news is reassuring: “We have all wondered these days how he was Davide, the hunter who last week risked freezing to death from jumping into the river to save his dog. You wrote me worried and you made me feel strong your closeness to our brother the hunter and his family. Now I am happy to tell you that Davide is fine, even if he was close to death.
He is hospitalized at the Civil of Brescia, in cardiac resuscitation, where he had arrived literally frozen. His body temperature had dropped to 24 degrees. A very severe hypothermia that was treated with the mechanical extracorporeal support of vital functions with Ecmo. He slowly recovered and now he's out of harm's way. Thanks goes to the man who dived into the river without thinking about the risks to get Davide out, to the resuscitators who intervened on the spot who never stopped the heart massage and to the hospital doctors who have found the right way to intervene.
Thanks to all of you who have shown how our hunting family is united and involved. A small note, at the end of this story that ended well, I wanted to do to the animal rights activists who continue to say that we treat our dogs badly. David risked his way to his own. Now you could begin to keep quiet, thank you ”.
