Six-year-old Albie reunited with Thomas

During the Easter holidays, the critical care team from Anglia One (Norwich) were dispatched to a life-threatening medical emergency in North Norfolk. The patient was six-year-old Albie.

Thanks to you, the East Anglian Air Ambulance crew provided advanced critical care at scene that day, where the difference between life and death for Albie rested on how quickly he could receive advanced treatment, and the speed at which he could be transferred to a specialist hospital.

"I’ve wanted to be a pilot since I was 12 and becoming a HEMS pilot was always my dream and why I wanted to fly helicopters. I feel very privileged to be able to work with such amazing crews and inspirational people at Babcock and EAAA. I look forward to coming to work, the flying is exciting and every day is different!"
