Jack was just a new-born when he was flown in our helicopter from the Isle of Wight to Southampton.
At just four weeks old little Jack had gone off his feeds and was struggling to breathe, as you can imagine his parents were fraught with worry. A consultant from Southampton advised that he needed emergency heart surgery, but this couldn’t be done on the Isle of Wight.In Jack’s hour of need, the Children’s Air Ambulance flew Jack in just eight minutes.
Just before he went into surgery, his heart stopped. So for Jack, every second really did count.
We are the only helicopter emergency transfer service in the country dedicated to children.
