As detailed Rosario 3, There were no injuries due to the fall of the roof, which could not withstand the weight of the water and gave way.. The causes of the disaster were explained by the institution’s medical coordinator, Hannibal Krivoy, in dialogue with Three: “There was a problem with one of the main storm drains, which caused a discharge of water on the masonry of the ceiling of durlock that did not resist and fell to the floor. The water was the one that warned so that there would be no one. The materials that fell are light, so we estimate that they would not have caused injuries either.”

Krivoy explained that the shock room, plaster and suture areas, which he defined as “the hottest”, were not affected and that general attention was immediately restored in another sector of the building. “The cause was solved and now only the repair of the damage remains. We worked continuously all night and we estimate that in the course of today and tomorrow it will be resolved,” he concluded.
