On the afternoon of April 3, a medical helicopter AW139 landed steadily in front of emergency building on Xiasha Campus of Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital (SRRSH). The awaiting emergency medical staff rapidly took the patient out of the helicopter and transfer him to the emergency room.
The patient is a 24-year-old man who was previously sent to the Shaoxing Central Hospital for cerebral hemorrhage by a car accident. Due to the severity of continuous coma, he needs to be transferred to SRRSH for rescue. After receiving the phone call, SRRSH medical staff immediately set off by the helicopter and got the patient back within one hour. This is the most recent air emergency rescue happened on SRRSH Xiasha Campus.
On the afternoon of April 13, in front of the medical building on Xiasha Campus stood two helicopters, 20 survey cars, two ambulances as well as a 180-people square consisting of rescue team, volunteers and medical staff.
