BETTER NEWS!

30/07/2007

As you are aware, the result of the serious accident that occurred two weeks ago during training, was that our Crewman Alistair McLean, suffered severe head injuries, and was critical for some time in Hospital. The good news is that Ali is now recovering and at the weekend managed to dress himself and has now been moved to a General Ward from Intensive Care.

His family want to thank all the wellwishers who have sent in e-mails and cards, which have given them support during this horrendous time. His brother Ian, who is also a member of the crew at Kinghorn said, "It was a very worrying time for us all, at one point Ali was only given a 50-50 chance of survival and as you will appreciate my Mum and Dad were devastated with that news. As time has gone on however, Ali has improved, and although not out of the woods yet, he is managing some basic tasks."

The volunteer crew would also like to thank you for your e-mails of support, concern and offers of assistance.
