Angle grinder accident results in air lift to hospital
Last February my husband had a horrific accident involving an angle grinder. The blade of the grinder shattered and a large piece of the blade lodged itself into my husband's throat.
After being taken by Ambulance to our closest local hospital (Taree Manning Base), he was air lifted by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter to John Hunter Hospital. The recovery team which attended to Derek during the flight were nothing but wonderful. The pilot (and Pastor)of the Helicopter, Ossie, said a prayer for Derek's safety on the flight and also came to visit him in hospital during his recovery where he said a prayer for his recovery.
The experience was one I do not ever want to have to repeat, but it was certainly made easier by the wonderful care and support we were given by everyone involved.
