Bacolod DYA Rescue in Action

Accident may happen when you least expect it. It may be due to personal carelessness or negligence or due to mechanical fault or malfunction of a machine. In time like that, the victim becomes helpless and immovable unless there are persons who apt to give assistance or give the first aid before the medical assistance arrives.

Road accident victim rescued by DYA Rescue Team, Bacolod
Recently I personally witnessed how a road mishap victim was rescued by DYA group of volunteers in Bacolod, Philippines. The vehicular accident was between a motorcyle rider and a van. I didn't see actually how did the accident happen but I just took footage of the DYA did the rescue job in taking care of the victim and transporting him to the nearest hospital, Southern Bacolod General Hospital (SBGH).

This the first time I knew DYA. According to,, DYA (Detente Y Ayuda) is a nonprofit organization and it is founded in 1966 in Bilbao (Vizcaya) by Dr. Juan Antonio Usparitza Lecumberri. It has a comprehensive emergency management to equip their volunteer-members to do the rescue job on roadside assistance. It is currently operating in Spain and on the island of Negros and Panay (Philippines).
