Any news on the medevac rider?

Some medevac are unwarranted but nevertheless anyone have an update on the rider from yesterdays. I heard the level 2 rider took a big tumble after the lunge.

IDK about "unwarranted", but the chopper is always called in when they risk missing the golden hour window. If life flight is called in, it's serious.

Just because someone survives after air transport doesn't mean their life wasn't in danger. Easy to bleed out in a ground ambulance in the amount of time it would take to drive a patient to a trauma center.

o.k. Sorry, I didn't mean that every medevac at the track has been unwarranted. But there has been a few cases, I know of as a physician. I'm not judging this particular case but am just looking for an update on yesterdays, I think he was taking to UTMB.

I was a little farther behind so by the time I got up there it had already happened. He wasn't moving so I was pretty worried. Glad it wasn't as bad as I thought it was, but I hope he heals up quickly.
