Mum's anxious wait goes on

SANDY Brosnan was on tender hooks late yesterday as she waited on news of her badly wounded son, Jason Montgomery, who was due to have arrived on a special medically supervised flight in Dubai yesterday afternoon.

The Rainbow Beach mother was expecting to know late last night how her son had fared on the risky flight from London, where he has been recovering from a gunshot wound suffered in the troubled South American nation of Guyana.

Jason was shot two months ago in a robbery, as he enjoyed after work drinks at a bar not far from where he was living.

He was in the country working as an industrial cleaning product representative.

One botched operation and an attempt to repair the damage at another Guyana hospital left him critically ill, with blood clots in his lungs and legs.

A risky flight to London greatly improved his chances, thanks to an American medical evacuation company which arranged for his flight to be closely supervised by highly qualified paramedics.
