Bradley, who has a condition that means he needs an artificial heart valve and a pacemaker, suffered a life-threatening seizure while at school on April 22. Unbeknown to the crew onboard the Magpas helicopter, it was Bradleys eighth birthday, which he spent the remainder of in Peterborough City Hospital. Knowing how much Bradley, who has since been diagnosed with epilepsy, loves helicopters, Magpas gave Bradley a belated birthday surprise. Magpass Dr Tom Odbert, who attended Bradley in April, knocked on his classroom door at 11am last Wednesday (June 10) to whisk him off in the Magpas emergency response BMW for a VIP tour of RAF Wyton, the home base for the charitys chopper. The team arrived during playtime in the morning and all the children loved it, said Antonia Brickell, Magpas head of communications. The school was fantastic and Bradley hasnt stopped smiling since. The incident in April and subsequent epilepsy diagnosis has affected Bradleys confidence, so much so that hes found it difficult to even go out during playtime, which is why Magpas and the school planned the special visit. Bradley, who was whizzed off to RAF Wyton to see the Magpas helicopter, said: It was awesome, right from when Dr Tom surprised me at school. The day was amazing, but I liked getting into the helicopter and meeting the Magpas pilot too. Dr Odbert said it had been great to see Bradley looking so well and smiling all day. Its been a pleasure to give him the birthday he didnt have when we flew to him in April, he said. What happened to him that day was a really big deal, and he was clearly in need of some Magpas VIP treatment. Bradleys dad, Charlie, 32, said: The last six months have knocked him for six, but this has really given him a boost of confidence. As soon as he saw the helicopter, he jumped in and loved every second of it. Ill never forget the day they flew into the school when he had the seizure and saved the situation were so, so grateful.
