Tennis Player Comforted By Teammate After Helicopter Triggers His PTSD
During the Invictus Games, currently underway in Australia, a competitor rushed to the aid of a teammate suffering PTSD.
British Army hero, Paul Guest, was upset by the sound of a helicopter, which interrupted his wheelchair tennis match in Sydney. Teammate Edwin Vermetten, from The Netherlands, spotted Guest in tears and went to comfort him.
It has been described as "an extraordinary moment of teamwork and human compassion" by Games organizers.
Recounting his efforts to aid his teammate, Mr Vermetten told the Invictus Games that he had sung ‘Let It Go’, from popular Disney film ‘Frozen’, to ease the tension.
