A 57-year-old woman is now being treated in the Cayman Islands Hospital after being medevaced from Little Cayman by the RCIPS helicopter.

Following an urgent request from Medical Services in the Sister Islands, the RCIPS helicopter, accompanied by a paramedic from Grand Cayman, today undertook a medical evacuation from Little Cayman of a 57-year-old woman requiring urgent specialist medical attention in Grand Cayman. The transfer took 40 minutes, and the lady is now being treated in the Cayman Islands Hospital, George Town.

The paramedic was assisted by one of the medic trained police tactical flight officers.

  1. This is great publicity for RCIPS and the fact that we are now in the 21st century with the Islands fielding a helicopter. Perhaps RCIPS should consider investing in a second ‘copter which can help out as in this case and also pursue local criminal twerps in their souped up Hondas without having to worry about getting stuck in traffic.

    Would it be bad to propose a heavy machine gun mounting and infra red sensors… Just in case… :-))

  2. And bush wanted to sell the helicopter – whatever the operating cost, it is impossible to put a value on something which might save a life – or lives. Another example of his inability to understand the essential priorities of a community – however small it might be.
