On a freezing December night, Josh was just 10 at the time when a car came speeding along and crashed into our little boy. My wife Sam and I saw the whole thing. It was like being in a real-life nightmare. One minute we were all so happy, the next Josh’s blood was all over the road and Sam was screaming his name.
I lay beside Josh in the road with my arm round him trying to keep him warm, thinking ‘I need an angel’. And then they arrived. Magpas that is. I know that without them, our Josh might not be here.
Magpas Critical Care Paramedic Keir and Doctor Nick worked on Josh on the road for half an hour, and then Keir stayed with Josh in the ambulance to Addenbrooke’s. Afterwards, one of the doctors at the hospital said to me that Magpas Air Ambulance had saved Josh’s legs.
