Extra Mile Awards

 

Congratulations to Lance Goldsmith, Peter Petrie and Roz Bradley at Gatwick Airport for being awarded with Gold Extra Mile Awards! The team received the Gold awards for saving a passenger’s life!

On the 23rd of July 2019, a passenger collapsed in the North Terminal sustaining a significant head injury losing blood rapidly the passenger lost consciousness although the passengers breathing remained stable. Peter took control of the situation placing the passenger in the recovery position. He then called for paramedics and also summoned Lance Goldsmith and Roz Bradley to the scene where the passenger’s condition was deteriorating rapidly. Whilst Lance Goldsmith performed CPR until the point of exhaustion Ros supported and took life signs, she then took over the CPR until paramedics arrived.

The paramedics stated on that scene that CPR performed saved the passengers life, after the passenger’s independent breathing and pulse had ceased.  This is an amazing achievement, thank you to the WJ team for there quick, life saving actions.
