-to the other side of the island.

0:01:370:01:41

0:01:530:01:55

0:02:220:02:24

-To Trearddur Bay, fractured leg.

0:02:240:02:27

0:02:310:02:33

-Helimed 61, go ahead.

0:02:350:02:37

-"Yes, Helimed 61.

0:02:370:02:40

-"Stand down, Trearddur Bay.

0:02:410:02:43

-"Can I divert you

-to Anglesey racing circuit?

0:02:440:02:47

-"We've just received another call."

0:02:480:02:51

-An ambulance crew

-is at the scene in Trearddur Bay.

0:02:540:02:58

-The helimed's priority

-now turns to the racetrack.

0:02:580:03:02

-Understood. Diverting to Ty Croes.

-Not far away now, over.

0:03:030:03:08

-"Thanks."

0:03:080:03:09

-The motorbikes can reach speeds

-of 160mph on the racetrack.

0:03:100:03:15

-This isn't the paramedics'

-first visit to the racetrack.

0:03:180:03:22

-You OK? Hi, Andy.

0:03:220:03:25

-Andrew Timbrell was competing

-in his second race of the day.

0:03:260:03:30

-Approaching a corner, he was hit

-by a bike on his left-hand side.

0:03:300:03:35

-Query. A pain here.

0:03:350:03:37

-When I got him,

-he was on this side.

0:03:370:03:40

-Sweating profusely. SAT 94.

0:03:410:03:43

-Hefin Jones, the first responder,

-asked for the air ambulance.

0:03:440:03:49

-The patient has breathing problems

-and is on oxygen.

0:03:490:03:53

-He's getting better.

-He's rather pale.

0:03:540:03:56

-99 now.

0:03:570:03:58

-Spot on. Query.

0:03:590:04:01

-Hefin believes that Andrew

-has a pneumothorax...

0:04:030:04:06

-..a serious lung injury.

0:04:060:04:08

-He needs to be transferred

-to hospital immediately...

0:04:080:04:11

-..or his condition

-could deteriorate rapidly.

0:04:110:04:14

-However, a second patient

-needs attention.

0:04:170:04:21

-Christian Peck was injured

-in another accident.

0:04:220:04:25

-Fortunately,

-he was wearing a helmet.

0:04:250:04:28

-Which one should we take first?

0:04:290:04:30

-Which one should we take first?

-

-He's our priority.

0:04:300:04:31

-Because of the chest.

0:04:310:04:34

-His chest is clear, abdo soft,

-fully conscious.

0:04:340:04:38

-So this gentleman, yeah?

0:04:380:04:41

-The helicopter can only transport

-one patient at any one time.

0:04:420:04:46

-Andrew is their priority.

0:04:460:04:48

-It was a more dangerous situation.

0:04:480:04:51

-There was a chance

-he could deteriorate.

0:04:510:04:54

-He could stop breathing.

0:04:540:04:56

-Today, a familiar face

-is lending a hand.

0:04:570:05:00

-Carl Hudson is normally a pilot

-with Helimed 61.

0:05:000:05:03

-Today, on his day off,

-he was at Ty Croes racetrack...

0:05:030:05:07

-..raising money for the charity.

0:05:080:05:10

-Andrew has broken bones

-in his back before.

0:05:100:05:13

-Even though he has no pain

-in his neck or back...

0:05:130:05:18

-..the medics transfer him

-to a rigid stretcher.

0:05:180:05:22

-Thanks, Hef.

0:05:220:05:24

-Left arm, put it on

-to your chest for me.

0:05:250:05:28

-Aargh, aargh!

0:05:280:05:30

-Where's the pain?

0:05:300:05:32

-Left foot is painful.

0:05:320:05:34

-He may have broken his ankle.

0:05:350:05:38

-He'll need a splint to prevent

-the bone tearing open the skin.

0:05:380:05:42

-Aargh!

0:05:460:05:48

-Aargh!

-

-Alright, sunshine.

0:05:480:05:49

-It's for the greater good.

-You won't believe that now.

0:05:500:05:53

-There's also a danger

-that his lungs could stop working...

0:05:540:05:59

-..because of the injury

-to his chest.

0:05:590:06:02

-In the helicopter, Andrew will reach

-Ysbyty Gwynedd within seven minutes.

0:06:020:06:08

-By road, it's a half-hour journey.

0:06:080:06:11

-Thanks, Hef.

0:06:110:06:12

-Andrew was travelling at a speed

-of 70mph when he came off his bike.

0:06:150:06:20

-He needs further tests

-at the hospital.

0:06:210:06:24

-He'll go straight to X-ray

-when we reach Bangor.

0:06:240:06:28

-One, two, three.

0:06:290:06:32

-After delivering one patient...

0:06:320:06:34

-..Sam and Bob return to Ty Croes

-for the other one.

0:06:350:06:38

-To get there quicker,

-I'm going with just the pilot.

0:06:380:06:44

-The paramedics on scene

-have done the work.

0:06:440:06:49

-We just need to transfer him

-to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:06:490:06:52

-Within minutes, the crew is back

-above the Anglesey Circuit.

0:07:040:07:09

-Paramedic Hefin Jones

-is still there.

0:07:090:07:13

-Slowing down, approximately

-50-60mph. He's been hit in the back.

0:07:130:07:18

-He's gone over the top,

-landed onto the track.

0:07:180:07:22

-He's then been hit by another bike

-on the head.

0:07:230:07:26

-The helmet

-prevented any serious injury...

0:07:260:07:29

-..but Christian Peck

-will need a thorough examination.

0:07:300:07:34

-Feet there, head there.

0:07:340:07:37

-They place him on a stretcher

-and fly him back to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:07:380:07:43

-All happy. OK, Chris? Just gonna

-slide you into the aircraft.

0:07:500:07:54

-Both arms in, tight together.

0:07:540:07:57

-In part two...

0:07:590:08:00

-..we'll find out what happened

-to the bikers in hospital.

0:08:000:08:04

-On high streets across Wales...

0:08:110:08:14

-..air ambulance shops raise money

-to keep the helicopters airborne.

0:08:140:08:19

-The charity now runs 18 shops.

0:08:190:08:21

-We visited Mumbles

-to see the latest shop being opened.

0:08:210:08:27

-It's 1 March, a few hours

-before the official opening.

0:08:310:08:35

-Wales Air Ambulance was established

-on St David's Day 12 years ago.

0:08:380:08:42

-Today, the charity opens its latest

-shop in Mumbles, near Swansea.

0:08:430:08:48

-Margaret Squires is responsible

-for the preparations.

0:08:480:08:51

-It's nice when a new shop opens.

0:08:520:08:54

-We're hoping to see

-plenty of customers.

0:08:540:08:57

-We've advertised in the press.

-There are posters in the window.

0:08:570:09:03

-All the hard work

-has attracted a lot of interest.

0:09:040:09:07

-Customers are queuing up outside

-an hour before the opening time.

0:09:080:09:12

-We have enough volunteers

-to cope with the surge.

0:09:140:09:17

-We have enough stock

-in the storeroom.

0:09:170:09:20

-When we start selling items, we have

-enough to replenish the shelves.

0:09:210:09:26

-A few minutes before the opening,

-it's time for a quick meeting.

0:09:270:09:32

-One of the new volunteers

-is Pat Parker.

0:09:320:09:35

-I retired last year.

0:09:350:09:37

-I had some time on my hands.

0:09:380:09:41

-I decided to volunteer.

0:09:410:09:43

-If I can help to keep

-the helicopter airborne...

0:09:440:09:47

-..whether it's needed at sea,

-on a mountain...

0:09:470:09:51

-..or at the roadside,

-it's a good thing.

0:09:510:09:54

-It's 11.00am,

-the official opening.

0:09:570:09:59

-My name's Angela Hughes

-from the Wales Air Ambulance.

0:10:020:10:05

-Despite the celebration,

-it's also a day to remember.

0:10:060:10:09

-Days before the opening, Bob Palmer,

-the charity's chair, passed away.

0:10:090:10:14

-He died last week.

-His daughter will open the new shop.

0:10:140:10:19

-He was a local man and he'd tried

-to open a shop here for years.

0:10:190:10:23

-Today, Swansea's air ambulance flies

-above Mumbles, in memory of Bob.

0:10:230:10:28

-He was part of the group

-that formed the charity in 2001.

0:10:280:10:32

-He was a firm believer

-in the service.

0:10:320:10:35

-It meant everything to Bob.

0:10:350:10:37

-There was no such charity in Wales

-at the time.

0:10:380:10:41

-Bob decided to establish

-an air ambulance charity.

0:10:410:10:45

-Bob was a pilot and he was often

-out on his motorbike.

0:10:450:10:50

-It's a pity he's not here today,

-but his wife and daughters are here.

0:10:520:10:56

-They're proud to open it

-in Bob's memory.

0:10:560:11:00

-The shop is packed.

0:11:090:11:11

-With a central location in Mumbles,

-staff hope the shop will succeed.

0:11:110:11:16

-The location is important.

-The size of the shop too.

0:11:170:11:20

-The van's here to bring more stock.

0:11:210:11:24

-We want people to know

-it's a popular place to come.

0:11:250:11:29

-It's smaller

-than other shops we've opened...

0:11:290:11:34

-..but empty premises

-are few and far between in Mumbles.

0:11:340:11:38

-We wanted a shop here

-and we hope it will be a success.

0:11:380:11:42

-Within two hours,

-the shop has already taken 500.

0:11:420:11:46

-It's a very promising start

-for the volunteers.

0:11:460:11:49

-We'll learn as we go on.

0:11:500:11:53

-We're happy doing what we do.

0:11:530:11:56

-We appreciate every penny.

-Eventually, pennies become pounds.

0:11:560:12:01

-After the break, the story of a girl

-thrown off her horse...

0:12:040:12:08

-..before being kicked in her head.

0:12:080:12:10

-The horse bolted, and Amy

-was motionless on the ground.

0:12:100:12:14

-I was afraid that she was dead.

0:12:140:12:17

-I'll meet Anglesey

-Motorcycle Club members...

0:12:180:12:21

-..and find out what they think

-of the air ambulance.

-Almost half the calls

-to Wales Air Ambulance...

0:12:370:12:40

-..respond to accidents

-on Welsh roads.

0:12:410:12:43

-Many involve motorbikes.

0:12:440:12:46

-Before the break,

-we saw paramedics help two bikers...

0:12:460:12:49

-..who needed

-emergency medical attention.

0:12:490:12:52

-On the Anglesey Circuit,

-everyone knows that the service...

0:12:520:12:56

-..can be the difference

-between life and death.

0:12:570:13:00

-The circuit, on the western coast

-of Anglesey, near Ty Croes...

0:13:090:13:13

-..attracts over 60,000 visitors

-every year.

0:13:130:13:16

-It's home

-to the Anglesey Motorcycle Club.

0:13:170:13:19

-Why do you enjoy

-riding your motorbike?

0:13:240:13:28

-The thrill.

-Just everything about it.

0:13:280:13:30

-Just, I don't know, I just

-let loose when I'm on my bike.

0:13:310:13:35

-It's there, from a young age.

0:13:360:13:38

-You leave it

-and come back to it later in life.

0:13:390:13:42

-It's everything to me. I love it.

0:13:420:13:44

-When you have the chance

-to go out, you go.

0:13:440:13:47

-With the crowd in this club,

-we have a lot of fun.

0:13:480:13:51

-With bikes travelling at speeds

-of 160mph...

0:13:550:14:00

-..it can be a dangerous sport.

0:14:000:14:02

-Motor sport

-can be rather dangerous...

0:14:040:14:10

-..but the safety of those

-taking part is very important to us.

0:14:100:14:16

-Every time

-anything goes out on the track...

0:14:160:14:20

-..there are paramedics

-on site with them.

0:14:200:14:23

-If anyone has an accident...

0:14:240:14:26

-..they're treated

-in less than a minute.

0:14:260:14:29

-There's a close link between the

-Anglesey Circuit and the bike club.

0:14:320:14:36

-Derwyn Jones is the club's chair

-and one of the track's marshals.

0:14:360:14:41

-I've seen the air ambulance

-landing here many times.

0:14:410:14:45

-It's important to support

-the service, not just for bikers...

0:14:450:14:51

-..but for everyone outside

-this circuit and on our roads.

0:14:510:14:56

-The club raises money

-for the service every year.

0:14:580:15:01

-It's a responsibility

-they're happy to accept.

0:15:010:15:04

-Last year, we raised 1,000.

0:15:050:15:08

-It doesn't sound a lot...

0:15:080:15:10

-..but if that money funds one trip

-to save one life, it's worth it.

0:15:100:15:15

-How do you raise funds?

0:15:160:15:18

-We organized a run around Anglesey

-about two to three weeks ago.

0:15:180:15:22

-We call it the Anglesey Egg Run.

-It's very popular.

0:15:220:15:26

-We had around 300 motorbikes

-travelling around the island...

0:15:260:15:31

-..raising money

-for the air ambulance.

0:15:310:15:34

-People donated whatever they could.

0:15:350:15:37

-One of Helimed 61's paramedics

-is present today.

0:15:380:15:41

-Sam Williams enjoys biking too.

0:15:410:15:44

-Sam, as a biker and paramedic,

-you must understand the attraction.

0:15:440:15:49

-The boys in the club

-are having fun today.

0:15:490:15:52

-They're travelling around the track.

-It's a lot of fun riding at speed.

0:15:520:15:56

-It's safer being on the track

-than on the roads.

0:15:560:15:59

-Every journey in the helicopter

-costs 1,500.

0:16:000:16:04

-Every penny counts

-to keep the helicopters airborne.

0:16:040:16:09

-This club raises money for us

-every year.

0:16:090:16:12

-They're an important club for us.

0:16:130:16:15

-The helicopters attend horse riding

-accidents at least once a week.

0:16:200:16:26

-In one memorable call-out

-last September...

0:16:260:16:30

-..they attended an incident

-on Carn Ingli.

-since childhood.

0:16:360:16:40

-She's an experienced rider.

0:16:400:16:42

-I rode a horse before I could walk!

-I've competed in local shows.

0:16:420:16:47

-At university, I competed in teams

-in national competitions.

0:16:480:16:55

-On 9 September, 2012, a charity ride

-began in Newport, Pembrokeshire.

0:16:570:17:02

-It was meant to be

-a special day for Amy.

0:17:020:17:05

-It was my birthday.

0:17:050:17:07

-Ben's mother said I could go on

-the ride as a birthday treat.

0:17:070:17:13

-We reached the stables

-and it was a lovely day.

0:17:130:17:18

-We were all looking forward

-to the rest of the day.

0:17:180:17:22

-Glesni Jones joined her

-for the journey.

0:17:240:17:27

-A crowd of us went off

-to enjoy the day.

0:17:290:17:31

-We were heading to Tafarn Bessie.

0:17:320:17:35

-the pub and having a few drinks...

0:17:350:17:40

-..before continuing the journey.

0:17:400:17:42

-Everyone started together,

-but soon split into two groups...

0:17:460:17:51

-..the faster riders

-and the slower riders.

0:17:510:17:54

-Amy was with the faster riders.

0:17:540:17:56

-I remember passing a gate

-and heading up the mountain.

0:17:560:18:01

-I thought we were going too quickly,

-considering the terrain.

0:18:030:18:08

-There was a lot of mud underfoot.

0:18:080:18:11

-We went over a bank.

0:18:120:18:13

-That's all I remember.

0:18:150:18:16

-She was in front of me.

0:18:170:18:19

-The horse bolted

-and she was thrown underneath it.

0:18:190:18:22

-During a gallop,

-Amy's horse, Charlie, slipped.

0:18:230:18:27

-Amy had no time to fall safely.

0:18:270:18:30

-The horse was trying to stand up...

0:18:330:18:35

-..but it was on its back

-and was crushing Amy as it did so.

0:18:360:18:40

-The more it moved,

-the more injury it caused.

0:18:400:18:43

-As the horse got to its feet,

-it stood on Amy's head.

0:18:430:18:47

-It bolted and someone went after it.

0:18:470:18:49

-Amy was motionless on the ground.

0:18:500:18:52

-Amy was unconscious.

0:18:520:18:56

-I was afraid that she was dead.

0:18:560:18:58

-Fortunately,

-two nurses were part of the group.

0:19:000:19:03

-They started to administer

-medical aid.

0:19:030:19:07

-Glesni phoned for an ambulance.

0:19:070:19:09

-"What's the address

-of the emergency?"

0:19:100:19:12

-"She fell off a horse,

-she's hurt very badly.

0:19:120:19:16

-"We're on the top of the Preselis."

0:19:160:19:18

-When I made the call...

0:19:200:19:22

-..I was trying to explain

-to the operator where we were.

0:19:230:19:27

-I kept saying,

-"we're on the Preselis".

0:19:280:19:31

-She asked if we had a map

-or a grid reference. We had nothing.

0:19:310:19:35

-We weren't on the Preselis.

-I didn't have a clue.

0:19:360:19:39

-After explaining

-that they were on Carn Ingli...

0:19:390:19:43

-..an ambulance was dispatched.

0:19:430:19:45

-"We're sending someone

-straight away."

0:19:460:19:48

-When it arrived, paramedics realized

-a helicopter was needed.

0:19:500:19:55

-Ben Seabourne was on duty

-at the Welshpool headquarters.

0:19:550:19:59

-The lady had come off her horse...

0:20:010:20:03

-..in quite a rural area

-on top of a hill.

0:20:040:20:06

-She was a long way from any help...

0:20:070:20:09

-..and was reported

-as having back and head injuries.

0:20:090:20:12

-The first thing

-going through my mind...

0:20:120:20:16

-..is that the horse is out of the

-way of where the aircraft will be.

0:20:160:20:21

-We don't want them

-injuring anyone else.

0:20:210:20:24

-When we heard the helicopter

-approaching, it was such a relief.

0:20:240:20:29

-Someone was here to do something.

0:20:290:20:32

-By the time

-the helicopter arrived...

0:20:330:20:35

-..the other paramedics had made

-a full assessment of Amy's injuries.

0:20:360:20:40

-She was on the floor

-complaining of back and neck pain.

0:20:400:20:44

-We believe the horse

-had trodden on her head.

0:20:450:20:48

-Amy was now conscious.

0:20:480:20:50

-The crew made sure she was placed

-securely on a rigid stretcher...

0:20:500:20:55

-..to prevent

-any further spinal injuries.

0:20:550:20:58

-Once a patient's been injured...

0:20:590:21:01

-..if there is a small fracture

-in the spine...

0:21:010:21:04

-..any aggressive movements

-can cause more damage...

0:21:050:21:08

-..than was initially sustained.

0:21:090:21:11

-The closest hospital

-able to deal with Amy's injuries...

0:21:110:21:15

-..was Withybush Hospital

-in Haverfordwest.

0:21:150:21:18

-We flew her to Withybush Hospital.

-It was a 10-15 minute flight.

0:21:180:21:23

-That would have been

-well over an hour by land.

0:21:240:21:27

-After being seen at the hospital...

0:21:280:21:30

-..she was back in the air ambulance

-heading to Cardiff...

0:21:310:21:34

-..for specialist care.

0:21:350:21:36

-The operation on her spine

-lasted for six hours.

0:21:370:21:40

-There are two titanium rods

-in place.

0:21:410:21:46

-Eight screws in the vertebrae

-hold everything together.

0:21:460:21:50

-There were numerous fractures.

0:21:500:21:52

-They've been put back together

-to prevent them floating around!

0:21:520:21:59

-Nine months later,

-Amy's back on her horse.

0:21:590:22:03

-She's grateful for the help

-she received on the day...

0:22:030:22:07

-..especially to the air ambulance.

0:22:070:22:10

-If I hadn't been taken down

-the mountain by air ambulance...

0:22:100:22:16

-..with any spinal fracture,

-especially a serious serious...

0:22:160:22:20

-..there's a danger

-you might never walk again.

0:22:210:22:24

-Taking her to hospital by land

-would never have worked.

0:22:270:22:31

-They wouldn't have taken her

-to the hospital as quickly.

0:22:310:22:35

-We're just so grateful.

0:22:350:22:37

-Andrew Timbrell's onboard camera

-recorded the fateful seconds...

0:22:460:22:50

-..as he hit the track.

0:22:510:22:53

-Lung and ankle injuries

-led to a week-long hospital stay.

0:22:530:22:57

-Nine months later,

-he's recovering at home.

0:22:580:23:02

-Christian Peck was thrown

-off his bike and hit by another.

0:23:040:23:10

-After a few hours in the hospital,

-he was allowed home.

0:23:110:23:15

-Next week, the crew helps

-a seven-year-old farmer's son...

0:23:160:23:20

-..after a horrific accident.

0:23:210:23:23

-Before I saw the helicopter,

-I thought it was the end.

0:23:230:23:27

-after a bee sting.
