One of the state-owned emergency care services in Lagos state rescued a young man who was a victim of hit and run along Town Planning Way Ilupeju, Lagos.
He was unconscious and unable to provide any information about himself. The emergency response services contacted HEI with request for funds for the medical treatment of the victim because timely medical intervention was urgently needed to save his life.
Support was given to the victim through our medical intervention trust fund funded by Sterling Bank Plc. HEI promptly provided funds that was needed for resuscitation and stabilization of the man. We are glad that the young man has regained consciousness and he is recuperating even as efforts are being made to trace/locate members of his family.
In the mission of saving lives, Sterling Bank Plc partnered with HEI to provide emergency response to road traffic accident victims. This will further help to achieve the goal of preventing needless deaths, preserve lives and their beautiful dreams.
Timely emergency care helps to avoid preventable death and disability, limit the severity of the injury and the suffering caused by it, and ensure the crash survivor’s best possible recovery and reintegration into society. The way in which persons injured in road traffic crashes are dealt with following a crash determines their chances and the quality of survival.
