AeroCare Air Ambulance provided air medical transport for a young motocross racer who was suddenly stricken ill with carbon monoxide poisoning before an important race, the company said.
AeroCare released a new “AeroCare Real Air Ambulance Patient Stories” video on their website, AeroCare.com. The video documents what happened to motocross racer Wyatt Krampitz in 2015, and how AeroCare was able to help him and his family in their time of need.
In July 2015 Wyatt Krampitz of Waseca, Minnesota was about to race in the biggest motocross race of his life when tragedy struck. The avid, amateur motocross racer, whose passion has always been to race had practiced for years to make it to the Loretta Lynn´s Amateur National Championship Motocross race. Krampitz had gone to the race track in Tennessee, to set up the family´s motorhome campsite ahead of his parents. Soon after Krampitz´s parents found Krampitz in the motorhome unconscious. Carbon monoxide had leaked into the motorhome and poisoned Krampitz. The Krampitz family had to find safe air ambulance transportation on a fixed-wing air ambulance to bring Krampitz home to Minnesota. The family reached out to AeroCare Air Ambulance.
AeroCare transports critically ill and injured patients with the use of their fleet of medically-configured air ambulance Learjets. Each of these specially equipped Learjets are outfitted like a “flying ICU” with a medical stretcher, medical equipment, medicines, and supplies you would typically find in a hospital setting. The Learjets can fly at speeds of 500 mph and altitudes of 50,000 feet.
AeroCare transported Krampitz to Minnesota to recuperate.
