Aircraft was operating a Medevac flight with 2 crew, 1 doctor and 1 patient on board.

Aircraft was cleared to 7000 feet but stated they were returning to KFLL, they were told to maintain 4000', they responded "not possible' and were doing a 180.

About a minute later the crew called Mayday, they were last reported 8 miles from KFLL with the airport at the 11 o"clock.
