THIS was the moment wen Droitwich Community First Responders (CFR) met up with a man whose life they helped save in December during the scheme’s first operational week.
Jatinderpal Singh was taken to the Worcestershire Royal for further treatment after the intervention during the incident four months ago.
Droitwich CFR scheme co-ordinator James MacDonald said it was great to meet Jatinderpal ‘in better circumstances’.
“Normally when people are taken to hospital is where it ends for us and we don’t get an update on the patient’s condition or find out the impact we’ve made to them and their family.
“So it was such an honour to meet Jatinerpal and his son’s to find out just how much we’ve helped.”
Jatinderpal has kindly donated two large filing cabinets for the Droitwich CFR office and his sons are very keen to help raise funds for the group.
“We can’t wait to support them in doing this and wish them all the best in their efforts,” they said.
Jatinderpal said in a Facebook post: “James came to me just before Christmas when I took a turn for the worse.
“I can’t remember what happened that day but I’m told that James came within a few minutes of my dad calling 999 and did whatever he needed to do to save me and make me comfortable before the paramedics came.
“I can’t thanks James enough and meeting him today was a tad emotional and really heart-warming.”
And he urged others to support the Droitwich CFR.
“The work that the First Responders do is life saving and anything we can do to help them goes a long way.
“My boys are thinking of ideas about how we can help the First Responders and we’ll keep you posted.”
