{ Watch Elzona describing the experience. "AFRIKAANS"}

Elzona, was busy with special training operation in being alert awareness in Nigel, when the call came through. She first thought it was the wrong address given to her, and was upset about the mistake, because the address they gave her, was her own ambulance service address.
But something told her, that she had to phone her daughter, the phone just kept going directly to voicemail every time. Even trying via the Whats-App group she was unable to reach Abigail.
On her way to the address, the Netcare- helicopter was called in, while volunteers where already busy clearing the field across from the address, for a landing strip.
First attenders were already busy trying to stabilise Abigail, but the trained paramedic, and mother in Elzona took over on first sight
" I could not help myself, scream orders at everyone, " and took over the process of saving my child.
(Elzonas reputation is known as an experienced first responder, as her reputation been reported in the past already,
1) Joel Dietrechsen (59) from Graham drive, Heidelberg has died after a hijacker shot him in the back in his driveway on November 29, 2014 at 19:30.
Friends visiting the Dietrechsen's were attacked by hijackers while driving out of the driveway. The woman screamed and Joel rushed to assist them. At this stage Joel was shot in the back.
Elzona Meyer was first on the scene. She and another member of Heidelberg Medic Volunteers struggled to keep Joel alive.

2) A young woman is in hospital after a near head on collision on the Heidelberg/Nigel Road at 16:30 on November 10.
According to eyewitnesses, an elderly man was driving east in his Alfa Romeo and collided with a young woman in a Citi Golf after he made an illegal u-turn.
The impact pushed the Golf onto the shoulder embankment leaving her vehicle overturned.
Elzona Meyer from Heidelberg Medic Volunteers said the woman complained of pain in her chest, spine and right knee. Medics suspected she sustained a fracture in her left hand and suffered from concussion and was transported to Heidelberg Hospital. )
Elzona who sat at the head of Abiail, and her little brother holding her hand, knew instinctively that her daughter's chances were slim. They started loosing her pulse, not even her wrist pulse was palpable any more. Her Saturation kept on dropping which means the percentage of oxygen in her blood got below normal, to sustain the vital organs. Her abdomen was extended and hard, that indicated that there was internal injury to her spleen, which cause her to bleed out. Clinical Elzona knew her child was dying.
"You can be a mamma now, and not paramedic", Elzona was told by her colleague when Abigail was airlifted to the Hospital.
On arrival at Hospital, Abigail was already in cardiac arrest, and Elzona was given permission to sit in, but after a while she touched the ER specialist's arm, and told him, "it is over.'
Time of death was 21.20
(Abigail was born 20 years ago at 22.18)
The hijacked vehicle was found abandoned and locked in the Traskane Township.
