UPDATE: The charter helicopter met STARS at the North Peace Regional Airport, not the FSJ Hospital, which was previously reported.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – STARS air ambulance was called to a “traumatic” worksite injury near Pink Moutain Sunday.
STARS says the 24-year-old worker was brought to Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Grande Prairie after a distant mission. The organization says it had to dispatch a charter helicopter to pick up the patient because of the distance.
STAR-6 out of Grande Prairie was requested around 7:15 p.m. and later rendezvoused with the charter helicopter at the North Peace Regional Airport. STARS landed at the QE II hospital around 10:45 p.m.
