Sound of angel’s wings

Motorcycle accident, Upper Hunter

On a deserted dirt road in the Gloucester Shire, NSW, Paul came off his motorbike. He suffered multiple broken ribs and experienced a lung collapse in hospital several days later which almost cost him his life.

“When you hear the sound of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, your mind relaxes a little, you know you will be soon in safe hands. When it landed near me, it was like the sound of an angel’s wings.”
