Late yesterday (Saturday) another medevac was undertaken by the Melanesian Foundation helicopter piloted by Sir Peter Barter in Madang (pictures below).
Gideon Ningende, a young man aged about 30, was cut badly on the neck with a bush knife following an argument at Watung Village near Saidor.
He was rushed to Saidor Health Centre, stabilised then taken by helicopter to Modilon Hospital.
His condition was serious but provincial health Adviser, Markus Kachau met Sir Peter and rushed the patient to the emergency ward.
"We need to expose these medevacs which occur numerous times a week in order to get some funds to purchase avgas for the helicopter," Sir Peter said.
"All these medivacs are done free of charge."
