Bandage International members recently returned from Belize, Central America on Dec 12th from another successful mission. Upon returning we were immediately notified from our friends in Belize of 2 major incidents that we had a direct impact on. In one incident a twin prop water craft drove over a swimmer and caused serious injury to the patient. There was a staff member close by that actually took part in our training course a few days before that provided care for this patient and transported the patient to a medical clinic a few miles away!
In the second incident a 7 year old child was pulled from a pool and successfully resuscitated by a patrol officer that had taken our course just 24hrs prior. I attached the link for this as per the local Belize Newspaper reported.
