    I pray this poor man will be ok. With the frequency of these accidents, let alone other situations, Bermuda definately needs their own air ambulance. This is absolutely crazy that we have someone who is qualified to do the job but won’t let the woman do her job! I just paid for a “low budget” air ambulance to get my loved one overseas for emergency treatment a few months ago and that cost us $17,900! Thank God for family and friends and charity that helped save a life.
