In the United Kingdom, where most medical flight services are powered financially by charities from the community, a businessman recently donated 1000 British Pounds. The donation was made to Midlands Air Ambulance. The donation comes during the festive season. It must be noted here that the donations peak during the Christmas season every year. This year was no exception to the trend, despite the new wave of the pandemic making its way into the lives of people. The donation to the medical flight service was made by Kevin Stevens who was, in the past, rescued by the local air ambulance charity.
Kevin’s Rescue by Medical Flight Charity
Kevin was recently evacuated by the medical flight charity. The rescue involved two air ambulances, ground ambulances, the fire department, and the police. The incident occurred when he suffered a stroke suddenly. Unfortunately, he was driving his car at the time. The stroke had caused him to push the accelerator pedal, and he had ended up hitting a tree. The result was a severe accident that occurred at a speed of 70 miles per hour. He was immediately flown to the nearest treatment facility via a medical flight. Kevin, though, has little memory of what had transpired. He had undergone emergency surgery and is believed to have suffered cardiac arrest about 17 times during the procedure.
Kevin is a Strong Support of Medical Flight Services Now
Receiving Kevin’s charity, the medical flight organization expressed its gratitude for the 1000 British Pounds that it received and said that it was a generous Christmas gift. Kevin has also organized events in the past to raise funds for the medical flight company. He is the managing director of a company called E5 Group and deals in minerals and property. The donation was made at the charity’s headquarter situated in Stourbridge.
