Ana Lía, the woman who saved the life of the Swedish tourist

We tell you the story of Ana Lía: another example of the solidarity that always emerges in our village.


At the least expected moment, we can go through a life-changing situation. That happened to Christoffer Persson, the Swedish tourist shot in the neighbourhood of Montserrat. And it also happened to Ana Lía Ferrer, the neighbor who, without looking for him, saved his life.
Her spirit of solidarity and, perhaps, an ability to react quickly to borderline situations were what pushed this 70-year-old psychologist to selflessly help the man lying on the street alone. And he bled out. Without thinking, Ana Lía ran down from her apartment with a towel and made a tourniquet on her leg. That simple act, which stopped the bleeding until the ambulance arrived, made the difference between life and death.
But his participation didn't end there. During the following days, he accompanied Christoffer and his girlfriend in the recovery process. Unfortunately, he lost his leg, but thanks to Ana Lía will be eternal: in June, she is invited to participate in the marriage of the couple. When they said goodbye at Ezeiza, Christoffer said the words that might make everything worthwhile for his heroine: “Thank you for saving my life.”
