According to the story, a young couple’s Fiji and New Zealand wedding and honeymoon trip was dangerously derailed when the new husband experienced excruciating pain and had to deplane prior to heading home. A brutal taxi ride, a closed medical clinic, and a kind local finally resulted in their arrival at a hospital where a burst appendix was diagnosed.
The young husband went through emergency surgery, but was soon kicked out of the hospital while not yet fully recovered. His wife located a nearby hotel where the couple could rest and he could complete his recovery. She then arranged for new air transportation home after he was cleared to travel.
Travel Guard awarded the couple a $10,000 ‘Heros Vacation’ in honor of the young wife who kept her cool and nursed her husband. Read the full story and see the video.
