In the jungle

Our intrepid adventurers were trekking through the Amazon when they heard screams of terror ahead. Knowing a woman had passed by a few moments before holding a baby, Dan and Dave broke ranks and raced forward. Up ahead on the trail they could see the woman being attacked by a swarm of black wasps. Naturally they launched themselves into the killing zone. Dan picked up her bags while Dave encouraged her to move faster away through the mud. He also killed a number of wasps by beating them to death with a bottle of mineral water.

Once free of the swarm, Dan remembered he was not just a superhero but also a medical student. He administered 20mg loratadine. Although badly stung around her neck and chest, there was no apparent respiratory deficit.

We hope our MDU elective indemnity covers good samaritan acts but, in the event it does not, Dave accepts no liability for any deleterious consequences arising from Dan’s management of this patient.
