“We express our gratitude to the first responders who arrived promptly on the scene, as well as the members of the helicopter airlift unit, the doctors, and nurses at UAB, and all those who provided assistance during this accident. We appreciate their efforts and acknowledge that each of them played a vital role in preventing the situation from escalating to a more severe level.”
