Thanks for helping Australian visitor

March 28, 2014 | 9:55 am

Close friends of Brian and Mary Nowland of Tamworth, Australia, are truly grateful for the care provided to Brian that has resulted in the amazing outcome (“Cooling therapy helps get Australian visitor home alive,” Jan. 7).

Being so far away, it’s difficult to offer support to Brian and Mary, but when you hear them say how good the care (at St. Luke’s Hospital) is, and how appreciative they are of personal support given to them during this very stressful period, you feel assured everything is, and has been, done to achieve this great result.

The effort of his son, Sam, supported the best chance of survival to occur and is something to be admired by us all.

It should also encourage all of us to learn basic CPR.From all of us in Australia, thank you, Iowa.
