On 18 January 2020, a vehicle with three teenage boys fell into Hafnarfjörður harbour. This talk is about this course of events and how important good cooperation between respondents and specialised hospital treatments can be. Two of these boys required constant resuscitation until they could be placed in an extracorporeal circulatory unit.
