Costa Rica Fall

Zip LineAnna Frazelle would have spent six weeks alone, recovering in Costa Rica from a broken back,  if she had not had an Air Ambulance Card membership.

Frazelle, 46, her husband and daughters capped off a zip line tour of the rain forest by sliding down waterfalls. She hit a rock on the way down and broke her back in two places. “I came up and looked at my husband and said, `I can´t breathe,´ ” Frazelle said. She was transported to a makeshift medical hut, then, traveled 6 hours over bumpy, unpaved roads to a San Jose hospital for emergency surgery.

Meanwhile, Air Ambulance Card was dispatching a fully staffed air ambulance jet to bring Frazelle home. “Four members of the flight crew walked into my hospital room with the American flag on the arm of their flight suits and said `Ms. Anna Frazelle, we´ve come to take you home.´ Words can not describe how wonderful it was to see America in a foreign land,” said Frazelle. “I felt like Air Ambulance Card was a part of my family.”

Without her membership, the flight would have cost Frazelle $35,000 dollars cash, up front.
