Life Flight

CHILE | Monday, 8 March 2010 | Views [1922]

While on a hiking expedition trip in Patagonia I suffered overexposure to the elements. The windburn and an extremely high fever became life threatening and I had to be rescued by a helicopter, abandon the trek and be taken to the hospital for treatment.

How WN Helped

They paid for the medical treatment I received in Chile.

PAID USD $213.26
