Norwegian Air Force F16 jet saves patient's life by flying critical medical equipment

You may be surprise that an F-16 fighter aircraft of the Norway Air Force was recently used to carry medical equipment rather than carrying bombs to save the life a critically ill patient.

A report says that the life of a sick man in Bodø hinged on an ECMO machine, which supports the heart and lungs, which the hospital did not have. The nearest hospital that had the machine was some 280 kilometres away - a journey of 10 hours by road.

The hospital decided to contact the nearest air force base and asked for help. And the local air force authorities of the Royal Norwegian Air Force scrambled a F-16, similar to the one photographed above, to the hospital that had the ECMO machine and the life of the patient was saved.

Within 40 minutes of the call being received, the medical equipment had been delivered to the hospital in Bodø.

Four mighty sixes win ICC T20 World Cup for West Indies

No one could have believed it to expect four mighty sixes from a tailender to win the ICC T20 World Cup for the West Indies tonight in India.

Playing against India, the West Indians routed the English team and restricted them for a mere 155 runs. But what awaited for the Sammy's 11 was something very dreadful as at every ball it seemed that were losing the chase.

Batsmen like Gayle (4) and Simmons (0) were big disappointing for the West Indies. It was Samuels who brought them back to game but he alone was insufficient to chase the target. And then came Brathwaite, a bowler, a attainder who was to make history for the West Indies. His four mighty sixes changed the complexion of the game and won the match - rather just clutched it out from falling into the English hands.

What a day for West Indies: Their women earlier won the T20 World Cup today and the men followed the suit too and won the match for their country.

Many congratulations West Indies - you really deserved it.

Photo: AFP

Those who saw the semi final of the on going T20 ICC World Cup Cricket tonight at Mumbai would remember it for a long time. The second semi final of the tournament between hosts India and Sammy's 11 of the West Indies was simply a classic display of strong nerves of the West Indies.

India was first to bat and gave a target of 193 to the West Indians with a massive 89 not out by Kohli. Indian scored 192 in all 20 overs.

Coming to bat, the West Indians infused thrill in the match as the target was within sight but with a few runs at hand. West Indies' Simmons was caught thrice but on each occasion a no ball was given and the lucky man went on hitting and was at 82 when a massive six brought victory to Sammy's men, with only two balls remaining. They won b y seven wickets.

It may be added that despite massive, rather 100%, support of the entire crowd watch the match, clapping for India and staying mum for the West Indies, the Sammy's boys were unnerved and concentrated on winning and they finally won.

West Indians now face England in the final. England moved to final by beating favourites New Zealand by 7 wickets.
