Chris, so sorry to hear the bad news. Our thoughts will be with you and Janet tonight and our deepest sympathy to the young girls parents and family.

I'm sure it will take time to get your head round mate but like others said don't bottle it up you've got great support from your family and friends so use them as you need to cos we know you'd do the same for us.
Exactly Charlie.

Sorry about the sad news. Just think that you should realise that you have done as much as anyone could have.
I doubt trained professionals could have done more, I have a sister who has been in your situation who is one of this countries best trained and most experienced A&E Nurses and have heard many stories of how they battle to save lives and often fail. At least that girl had some one with her, some one who cared and who did all you could. AS others have said, don't bottle it up, just let it out. You certainly have the admiration and respect of myself and alot of others some who know you and some like me that don't.

With Respect

Hi Chris in life we make decisions some times right some times wrong you gave this girl a chance that was the right decision the end result was not down to your lack of trying i would like to think that in my hour of need the likes of you where there, there are a lot of people that could or would not have done what you did. Be proud all the people that know you will be proud of your efforts i am sure her family will be very gratefull.

Default You did all you could Chris


I will say it fella, you did all that you could and I take my hat off to you for getting involved.

Alot of people wouldnt have got involved which shows the strength of your character.

It is hard when you try your best and the result is not what you want to hear. My thoughts are with you fella it will be hard as you will think if you could have done anything else etc, Chris as you said you did all you could, thats is all that matters bud.

I will catch up with you soon Chris and have a natter fella.......

Good on you Chris for stepping in and doing what you could.

The outcome is unfortunate - but such is life, it isn't always fair.

Regards and sympathies as I am sure you will be affected by this for a while.

Dale and Jackie
