Maryland Medevac Crash Survivor Issues Statement in Recognition of One Year Anniversary

September 25, 2009

WALDORF, Md., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ Jordan Wells has issued the following statement in conjunction with the upcoming one year anniversary of the medevac tragedy in Maryland on September 27, 2008.

“As the one year anniversary of the medevac tragedy approaches, I would like to ask everyone to remember those who lost their lives aboard Trooper 2 on September 27, 2008 – Maryland State Police Pilot Steve Bunker, Maryland State Police Trooper First Class Mickey Lippy, Maryland Emergency Medical Technician Tonya Mallard, and my friend Ashley Younger. I am constantly reminded of those who died and the suffering of their loved ones. They are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I miss Ashley terribly.

My family and I would very much like to thank all emergency medical personnel who selflessly risk their lives daily to help others. In the midst of last September’s tragedy, knowing their comrades had perished and their own lives could be in jeopardy, they saved my life – and for that, we will be forever grateful. They are my heroes.

I’d also like to express my gratitude for the medical professionals and support staff of Prince George’s Hospital Center and the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Their care and expertise was critical to my survival and continued well-being.”
