Gringo (US/Denmark Expat) Assaulted In Bocas del Toro - Needs Blood Donations

Expat Tales By Don Winner for Panama-Guide.com - On Saturday night six armed, masked men assaulted and abducted 73 year old Stig Pedersen at his home located in Tierra Oscura, in Bocas del Toro, in the Republic of Panama.

They hit him on the head and hauled him off in his own boat, a "white T-top with 'Puff' written on the bow." The boat has a 75 hp four-stroke motor. At the time of the assault, the assailants were reported to be headed towards Almirante.

Stig Pedersen lives in Bocas del Toro and he has a home in Dolega.

Pedersen currently needs six pints of A+ blood. He was beaten severely and has several brain hemorrhages. He is at the public regional hospital in David. Please help, or forward to those who can.

Editor's Comment: Reportedly Pedersen recently told a friend that a neighbor "wants him dead." Obviously the National Police should start their investigation with whoever made the threat against him.

Does he still need blood? Is it possible to donate from Coronado? I'm not familiar with other areas but I'm his blood type.
