From eating dinner – to cardiac arrest.

Help us save other young lives like Albie’s.

Five-year-old Albie was enjoying dinner with his family when he went silent and started coughing. Albie had choked on his dinner and was in cardiac arrest.

CareFlight raced to Albie’s side, where they intubated him to help him breathe mechanically and improve his blood oxygenation. Albie was rushed to hospital accompanied by CareFlight doctor Giles Flick, who continued to work on Albie – relieving the pressure on his lungs.

When children like Albie are fighting to stay alive, your gift means CareFlight can race to their side to help.

“In situations like this, patients like Albie can’t wait to reach hospital. They need intensive medical care immediately – something CareFlight doctors like me are uniquely equipped to do at the scene.”

Giles Flick, CareFlight Doctor

Without your support, children like Albie would not be here.
