ZS-RAC at Humasdorp Hospital

I got the call at 16:08 for a hospital transfer from Humansdorp Hospital, situated 42Nm west of Port Elizabeth.

The patient was a mother who had given birth with a Caesarian section. She was still suffering internal bleeding, following the procedure.

I was airborne at 16:08 from Port Elizabeth, and airborne from PE Metro base with the paramedics at 16:30. We arrived on scene at 16:54.

After stabilizing the mother, we go airborne at 17:18 for Dora Ngiza Hospital at Bethelsdorp, Port Elizabeth. Flight time was 24 minutes.
