Starling Marine has partnered with the Do it for Drew Foundation to help raise money and awareness for the improvement of emergency medical care in rural communities like our own on a local, state, and national level. We are proudly sponsoring the raffle of a 2017 Parker 1801 CC. Tickets are $25 and available online or at our main location in Morehead City.

Drew’s Story

After sustaining a non-life threatening head injury while skateboarding with friends, Drew Hughes was transported by Ambulance to the local hospital. He was then intubated, as a precaution, for transport to a larger hospital. During this transport, Drew’s breathing tube was placed in his esophagus instead of his trachea depriving him of oxygen for 30 minutes which ultimately lead to his death. Properly trained and experienced transport personnel would have recognized the improper intubation and corrected the problem. The Do it for Drew Foundation hopes to encourage medical providers to hold themselves to the highest standards in order to prevent other families from going through what the Hughes family has had to endure. More details and information about what happened to Drew can be found on the foundation’s website.
