New father in need

Thank you ‘Angel Flight East Kootenay’ What amazing work you are doing for people in our community!I

Got big help from you, and I wanted share my story of how I got that help and how others can get help when needed in an emergency case. On 17th August 2019 my wife delivered a baby boy at Cranbrook hospital. Due to breathing issues, the baby had to be taken to Kelowna hospital by air ambulance. Because of the very small space in air ambulance, my wife and I couldn’t go at the same time. We were informed that they only can take the mother in air ambulance so Ihad to find my own way to Kelowna. One of the nurses from the hospital gave me the phone number and information about Angel Flight Kootenay.As soon as I got the number I called them. By the way, the day was Saturday, around 9 pm, so I thought to leave a voice mail in case the office was closed, but within a ring I was able to connect with Brent and Janet. I explained the situation that I was looking for help to fly to Kelowna as soon as possible. Within 20 min Janet confirmed that they can fly me to Kelowna, and also arrange a taxi to Kelowna hospital from airport.Next morning I met Brent and Tod at Cranbrook airport. Brent and Tod are very friendlyand we had a good flight with some beautiful scenery below. Within about an hour we reached the YLW airport, and a taxi was ready to pick me up. In fact, I reached Kelowna hospital earlier than my wife. I was so happy that I could see my boy sooner than expected. That was a big help and relief!I have no words to thank you Angel Flight Kootenay– Brent, Janet, and Tod,
Dilip and family
