A helicopter assigned to NATO’s Kosovo Force (KFOR) peacekeeping operation has performed an emergency medical evacuation of a newborn baby boy from a hospital in Pristina to a hospital in Belgrade.
The child was born in Gracanica with a serious heart infection that quickly spread to his lungs. KFOR first helped bring it to the Kosovo University Clinical Center in Pristina, where doctors managed to stabilize the young patient.
Following a request by the child’s family to continue treatment at a Belgrade hospital, a U.S. helicopter MEDEVAC UH 60 of MNBG- E (Multinational Battle Group – East) carried out the medical evacuation on Monday (21 November).
According to NATO, the emergency operation was made possible by the swift cooperation between the Serbian authorities and KFOR.
NATO-led operation KFOR continues to contribute to a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement, working in close cooperation with the local authorities and with the European Union.
