We run quickly towards the bushes and we see a crying lady . She must be in a lot of pain , I think , her foot is trapped . The woman seems to be relieved to sees us . Unfortunately , I can ’ t understand a word she is saying .
I hear Russie saying ” Hola ! Como estas ?”* and starts a conversation with the injured lady . I look at them and wonder what ’ s happening . What language are the two women speaking ? Russie turns to me and says “ Frank , this lady is Spanish and she seems lost . Luckily I lived in Spain for four years and remember a few words … She mentioned something about her friends … but I am afraid my Spanish is not good enough … I wish I had studied harder , Frank .”, my teacher says sadly . “ Let ’ s call the ambulance ! Look , the woman is in agony .” I grab my phone and dial 120 . Shortly someone answers my call and I explain to them all about the emergency . They say
they ’ ll send a helicopter soon . Meanwhile , Russie is calming down Bea , our new friend , and I can see she ’ s shared one of our sandwiches with her . I suggest we show some of our photos to the woman so that we keep her mind away from the pain . She seems quite grateful that we are keeping her company . I see Russie really struggling with her Spanish . It must be a very difficult language . Soon the helicopter arrives and two paramedics come to help Bea . After examining her foot , they decide to take her to hospital . It appears that it ´ s been broken . But we know that she is in good hands and will get help . Bea hugs us and thanks for our assistance and company .
Pleased that we could help the Spanish lady , we head off to the nearest cable car spot to continue our mountain adventure .
* Hola ! Como estas ? ( Spanish ) - Hi . How are you ? 38
