Air Ambulances Save Lives

We have all heard the stories about people who through mechanical problems or other difficulties have had trouble with air ambulance but these stories make up a small portion of the stories relating to air ambulances. There are so many situations where air ambulances have been the difference between life and death for many people.

There are many stories out there about the dangers of flying in an air ambulance but these stories are so infrequent and the chance of being harmed while flying in an air ambulance is very minimal. However these types of media friendly stories often bury the true live saving stories of air ambulance in action. These true stories help give a person a perspective on the true value of air ambulances and the services that they provide. Some of the most popular air ambulance rescues include Sammie Newlon, Ben Bryer, and Trevor Pierce. They told their stories to Air Ambulance Facts.

Sammie Newlon was a new born baby who despite a perfectly normal birth was having difficulty feeding and refused to feed for several days. The family doctor of the Newlon family told the parents of baby Sammie that there wasn't anything to worry about. The doctor then prescribed a broad spectrum medial antibiotic for Sammie that he thought would cure the problem. However Sammie worsened over the next twenty four hours and by the time his parents called 911 Sammie was barely breathing. An air ambulance was dispatched and picked the family up within minutes and delivered him safely to the hospital. Without the service of an air ambulance it is unlikely that baby Sammie would have survived to reach the hospital.

Ben Bryer was an eighteen year old youth who was critically injured while out riding his bicycle one day in Colchester. In his accident Ben Dryer had several fractures; many puncture wounds, a critical head injury, and had lost a significant amount of blood. Ben ended up in a coma for over nine days and without the quick medical treatment he received by having an air ambulance delivery him to the emergency room within a half hour it is likely that Ben would have never woken up.

Trevor Pierce was twenty two years old when he fell from roof top when he was hanging up Christmas lights and his ladder gave way beneath him. Trevor's injuries were very severe and paramedics were concerned about moving him by land as there was a great concern over spinal injuries and they didn�t want to worsen the situation. In the end an air ambulance was sent for and delivered Trevor to the hospital much quicker than the half an hour land journey would have been.
