-..but the patient's heart is having

-To get the heart beating properly...
-..the ambulance crew have given
-the patient an electric shock.

-to administer another one.

-and it's good news.

-even be halfway to Bangor by now.

-they can for the patient.
-His care is now transferred
-to the hospital.
-It's hard to know
-what the end result will be.

-for the paramedics and the pilot...
-..is to reach the location

-Pilot Tom Marcus
-lands on the centre circle.
-The patient is in pain.
-He may well have broken his leg
-in two places.
-..swelling on this side
-of your leg...

-With the sun about to set,
-they take off.

-of Porthcawl's Rest Bay very well.
-In November 2010, Rebecca and Steve
-were here on their first date.
-It's a popular area for climbers.
-Steve is a climbing instructor
-so Rebecca was in safe hands.
-We'd climbed six times that day.
-The last climb was to be
-the final climb of the day.
-The couple were climbing the largest
-cliff of the day in Box Bay.
-They only had time for one final
-abseil before the tide came in.
-I abseiled down before him.
-Steve had secured three hooks
-in the rock to hold the ropes.
-If one came loose,
-another one would hold the ropes...
-..but something went wrong.
-I was at the bottom, looking up.
-All of a sudden,
-I could see him falling.
-I heard this huge crack
-when he hit the ground.
-Steve fell 20 feet
-and landed on his back.
-He tried to get up.
-I told him to wait.
-He needed emergency help.
-Without a phone,
-Rebecca had to search for help.
-I was screaming for someone
-to phone the ambulance.
-Time was running out.
-The tide was coming in.
-Luckily, the air ambulance
-was close to Porthcawl.
-Paramedic Aneurin Heath
-was on board.
-We flew down along the beach
-but we couldn't see anything.
-The pilot flew lower and lower.
-I was sitting in the back
-of the helicopter looking back.
-As we flew along the beach,
-I spotted him.
-Steve needed medical assistance
-but the tide was coming in.
-The crew knew they could be in
-danger if they landed on the beach.
-Pilot Grant Elgar decided to land.
-We decided to put the aircraft on
-the beach before the tide came in...
-..to keep the rotors running...
-..and for Aneurin to leave
-the aircraft and attend the patient.
-I got out of the helicopter.
-The tide was coming in quickly.
-Grant had to take off
-and land on the cliff top.
-Steve had some serious injuries.
-80% of his bones were broken.
-He'd broken his pelvis,
-both his legs...
-..and I knew he had a back injury.
-Pilot Grant Elgar and paramedic
-Phil Thomas were on the cliff top.
-They were liaising
-with the coastguard.
-Time was fast running out.
-It was the highest tide of the year.
-We only had 15 minutes.
-Luckily, a helicopter
-from the Chivenor RAF base...
-..was training nearby.
-Within minutes, Squadron 169
-were sending down their winch man...
-..to help Aneurin.
-The dramatic events
-were filmed on a mobile phone.
-Between the winch man and myself,
-we lifted him out of the water...
-..and found a safer place
-to rescue him from drowning.
-Steve was placed on a hard board
-before the Sea King returned.
-We were waiting
-and waiting and waiting.
-The tide was coming further in.
-By the end, we were up
-to our shoulders in water...
-..trying to hold Steve out of
-the water and make sure he was OK.
-The Sea King lifts Steve
-and the winch man to the cliff top.
-He's transferred immediately
-to the air ambulance.
-He was in a serious condition and
-needed immediate medical attention.
-Steve was also suffering
-Hypothermia can actually help
-the body repair itself.
-Steve needed medical attention
-to stop any internal bleeding.
-He'd broken most of the bones
-in his body, including his spine.
-He was in a coma for three weeks.
-Steve stayed in Morriston Hospital
-for three months...
-..but he's now on the road
-Fifteen months later, Rebecca
-and Steve are back in Rest Bay.
-Steve suffers daily pain...
-..but he's determined to recover.
-The doctors say
-he's moved on quickly.
-he's not recovering quickly enough.
-Steve will need many more
-operations, but this couple know...
-..that the heroic effort of
-the crews that day saved his life.
-I think he'll be fine, eventually.
-It's just going to take some time.
-In November, the Helimed 57 team
-visited the House of Lords...
-..for the Ambulance Service
-I'd like to welcome you to this,
-our awards ceremony.

-helicopter flew to Ysbyty Gwynedd.
-Today, David Levers
-is home in Llan Ffestiniog.
-He stayed in the intensive care unit
-for almost two months.
-but I'm not back to where I was...
-..before the recent heart attacks.
-That will take months
-and months and months.
-He'd had a heart attack before.
-When his heart stopped working
-..the family feared the worst.
-When our son arrived,
-the ambulance was outside.
-It broke his heart.
-We weren't holding out much hope.
-It's a 75-minute road journey
-from Llan Ffestiniog to Bangor.
-David knows how crucial the air
-ambulance involvement was that day.
-You have 60 minutes -
-the golden hour.
-After that, whatever damage the
-heart attack has done, that's it.
-If the air ambulance
-hadn't been here on the third...
-..I wouldn't be here now.
-On next week's programme...
-..the man who lost his leg
-when a gas canister exploded.
-Concerns for the builder

-..the worst injury is
-breaking your back or brain damage.
