16-year-old Izzy doesn’t remember much about the day she nearly died, whilst boating with friends. She doesn’t remember falling overboard and feeling the boat’s propeller slice through her skull. She doesn’t remember nearly drowning and her friends dragging her unconscious from the water. She doesn’t remember the CareFlight doctor Tim, or the flight to the hospital.
Izzy does know she is lucky to be alive. Without CareFlight and you, there’s a very good chance her family would be facing the terrible grief of Christmas without their precious daughter.

Our crews are trained for precisely these kinds of unexpected, critical accidents. It’s why we are called to scenes like Izzy’s in our rapid response helicopter, which allows us to fly fast, land in the most challenging terrain and deliver lifesaving hospital-level care at the scene.
