By Andrew Atkinson

The body of a 73-year-old woman has been removed from a house by firefighters of the South Park of Torrevieja at the request of the Civil Guard.

The firefighters arrived on the scene on February 11, entering the house via a window, with the use of a stairlift.

The smell at the entrance of the house was very strong, and it was decided to act with a biological protection suit.

A woman was sadly found deceased and with symptoms of decomposition. Signs of Diogenes syndrome could be observed in the house.

Diogenes syndrome (DS) is a behavioural disorder of the elderly. Symptoms include living in extreme squalor, a neglected physical state, and unhygienic conditions.

During the operation, a command unit, heavy urban fire engine and ladder, sergeant, corporal and five firefighters, were in attendance.
