U.S. and Republic of Korea service members from Special Operations Command Korea provided assistance to a Korean farmer Thursday after they were flagged down by local civilians in the vicinity of Yeonsong on April 25, 2018.

대한민국, 서울, 용산 기지 – 한미 특전사 장병들은 4월 25일 경상북도 영천 인근에서 경운기 사고를 당한 한국인 농부를 구조 하였다.


The farmer was injured and unconscious after an accident with his tractor, which turned over and caught fire. The special operations professionals provided first aid and stabilized the man, as well as extinguished the fire and ensured the area was safe.

그 당시 농부는 경운기 사고로 부상을 당해 의식이 없었으며, 경운기는 길가에서 벗어나 불이 붙은 상태 였다. 특전사 장병들은 농부에게 응급조치를 취하고 화재를 진압하였다.


The U.S. service members are in country from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, participating in the Foal Eagle Field Training Exercise. The ROK service members are from the Seventh ROK Special Forces Brigade.
