Maryland Medevac Crash Survivor Issues Statement in Recognition of One Year
Anniversary

WALDORF, Md., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ --  Jordan Wells has issued the following
statement in conjunction with the upcoming one year anniversary of the medevac
tragedy in Maryland on September 27, 2008. 

"As the one year anniversary of the medevac tragedy approaches, I would like
to ask everyone to remember those who lost their lives aboard Trooper 2 on
September 27, 2008 - Maryland State Police Pilot Steve Bunker, Maryland State
Police Trooper First Class Mickey Lippy, Maryland Emergency Medical Technician
Tonya Mallard, and my friend Ashley Younger. I am constantly reminded of those
who died and the suffering of their loved ones. They are in my thoughts and
prayers everyday. I miss Ashley terribly.

My family and I would very much like to thank all emergency medical personnel
who selflessly risk their lives daily to help others. In the midst of last
September's tragedy, knowing their comrades had perished and their own lives
could be in jeopardy, they saved my life - and for that, we will be forever
grateful. They are my heroes. 

I'd also like to express my gratitude for the medical professionals and
support staff of Prince George's Hospital Center and the University of
Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Their care and expertise was critical to my
survival and continued well-being."
