Domestic violence.


We are dispatched to a beaten up person.

We arrive and there is a mid 20´s girl lying on a couch with her husband trying to comfort her.

We asses her. Nothing serious, a couple of bruises, a little cut in the lips. I ask her if she is comfortable with all the people in the room. She answers me: "My children, they saw everything... He was so drunk... he went crazy..." Two little ones aged 4 and 8 are on the other side of the living room scared as hell.

The police files a report but she doesn´t want to file charges. Police leaves. We also do.

She stays there with her husband and the children.
