-With the majority

-of the Welsh landscape rural...

0:00:210:00:23

-..it's not easy for the emergency

-services to reach everywhere.

0:00:240:00:27

-In these areas, Wales Air Ambulance

-helicopters make a difference.

0:00:280:00:33

-For the past three months, our

-cameras have followed the crews...

0:00:340:00:38

-..as they fly across Wales

-rescuing lives.

0:00:380:00:41

-On tonight's programme, a football

0:00:520:00:56

-..which raises money

-to help save lives.

0:01:000:01:04

-A couple's first date becomes

-a nightmare on Porthcawl beach.

0:01:060:01:10

-I was at the bottom looking up.

0:01:100:01:13

-All of a sudden,

-I could see him falling.

0:01:130:01:16

-In Wales, almost 250,000 people

-have heart disease.

0:01:220:01:27

-When someone has a heart attack...

0:01:270:01:30

-..it's crucial for them

-to reach hospital within the hour...

0:01:300:01:34

-..for the best chance of recovery.

0:01:350:01:37

-This is known as the golden hour.

0:01:370:01:41

-A man's life hangs in the balance

-in Llan Ffestiniog.

0:01:450:01:49

-His heart has stopped beating.

-The air ambulance is dispatched.

0:01:490:01:53

-A 67-year-old man

-has had a cardiac arrest.

0:01:540:01:58

-He's collapsed but two crews

-have managed to revive him.

0:01:580:02:03

-He has a good output so we're

-on our way to get him to hospital.

0:02:030:02:09

-Paul Ramsden, Sam Williams

-and Carl Hudson are on duty.

0:02:110:02:15

-Often, the crew is called

-to assist an ambulance crew.

0:02:170:02:22

-Today, the patient needs

-to be taken to hospital urgently.

0:02:220:02:25

-More often than not,

-we assist ambulance crews.

0:02:260:02:29

-They require our assistance

-to transfer patients to hospital.

0:02:290:02:35

-We're one service -

-we work as one team.

0:02:350:02:38

-Helimed 61, we're just

-coming up to the scene now.

0:02:400:02:44

-Are you any closer?

-Have you got a running time?

0:02:440:02:47

-The helicopter reaches

-Llan Ffestiniog within 15 minutes.

0:02:520:02:57

-The ambulance crew brings

-the patient to meet the helicopter.

0:02:570:03:01

-Helimed 61 lands...

0:03:030:03:06

-..but the patient's heart is having

-trouble beating unassisted.

0:03:060:03:10

-He's got output now.

0:03:100:03:12

-Any respiratory effort?

0:03:140:03:16

-He's got no respiratory effort.

0:03:160:03:19

-To get the heart beating properly...

0:03:190:03:21

-..the ambulance crew have given

-the patient an electric shock.

0:03:210:03:25

-They've done so 14 times already.

0:03:250:03:27

-Suddenly, they have

-to administer another one.

0:03:280:03:31

-All clear.

0:03:310:03:33

-Clear?

0:03:370:03:38

-Clear?

-

-Clear.

0:03:380:03:39

-He is seriously ill.

0:03:420:03:44

-Both paramedics monitor him closely

-on the way to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:03:440:03:49

-He'd already been given 15 shocks.

-He might've needed more on the way.

0:03:500:03:55

-You're constantly watching

-the ECG monitor for any changes...

0:03:550:04:00

-..if his rhythm goes into another

-VF, a ventricular fibrillation.

0:04:000:04:04

-Carl uses the breathing mask

-to help the man breathe.

0:04:050:04:09

-This patient may need another shock

-before the helicopter lands.

0:04:100:04:14

-It's a very good system.

0:04:150:04:17

-If there's a chance

-to revive a patient...

0:04:170:04:20

-..we use the shock

-and administer medication.

0:04:200:04:23

-Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor.

0:04:250:04:27

-The patient is in a stable condition

-and the situation is more hopeful.

0:04:270:04:32

-At the moment, he's breathing

-and his heart is beating.

0:04:370:04:41

-It's not quite

-to the required rate...

0:04:410:04:44

-..but he's hanging on in there

-and it's good news.

0:04:450:04:49

-An ordinary ambulance wouldn't

-even be halfway to Bangor by now.

0:04:500:04:54

-In a helicopter...

0:04:540:04:55

-..the patient receives

-specialist treatment within an hour.

0:04:560:04:59

-Administering the best treatment

-is crucial within the first hour...

0:05:000:05:06

-..especially for patients who have

-had a cardiac arrest or a stroke.

0:05:060:05:10

-The first hour is crucial.

0:05:110:05:12

-From Blaenau Ffestiniog?

0:05:130:05:14

-From Blaenau Ffestiniog?

-

-Llan Ffestiniog, yeah.

0:05:140:05:16

-The patient is transferred to

-the hospital's emergency department.

0:05:190:05:23

-The trauma team is standing by.

0:05:240:05:26

-Split it if you want, yeah?

0:05:260:05:29

-Ready to move when you are.

0:05:290:05:31

-On three - two, three.

0:05:320:05:35

-The doctors need a complete

-breakdown from the crew...

0:05:350:05:39

-..to decide

-the best course of action.

0:05:390:05:43

-The last shot was just before

-we left, about 25 minutes ago.

0:05:430:05:47

-The last adrenalin you gave?

0:05:470:05:49

-They gave it,

-and he said about half-nine.

0:05:490:05:53

-Carl and Sam have done everything

-they can for the patient.

0:05:530:05:57

-His care is now transferred

-to the hospital.

0:05:570:06:00

-It's hard to know

-what the end result will be.

0:06:000:06:04

-Since we were able to transport

-the patient so quickly...

0:06:040:06:08

-..I hope the conclusion

-is favourable.

0:06:080:06:10

-Here, at the back of the helicopter,

-the specialist medical equipment...

0:06:140:06:18

-..is crucial for saving lives.

0:06:180:06:21

-The challenge

-for the paramedics and the pilot...

0:06:210:06:24

-..is to reach the location

-as quickly as possible...

0:06:240:06:28

-..to treat the patient.

0:06:280:06:29

-To maintain the service,

-the charity must raise 5m a year.

0:06:340:06:39

-The charity's shops are

-an important part of the campaign.

0:06:390:06:44

-Shops workers appreciate

-the work of the red helicopters.

0:06:440:06:47

-Each staff member

-has a story to share.

0:06:480:06:50

-Did Santa Claus come and bring

-you toys? What did he bring you?

0:06:510:06:56

-Rhian Lewis has been running

-the Swansea shop for the past year.

0:06:560:07:00

-People visit the shops

-to thank the crews for their work.

0:07:000:07:03

-I enjoy seeing people

-calling in to ask questions.

0:07:040:07:07

-I hear many stories.

0:07:070:07:09

-Some are happy stories,

-some are sad.

0:07:100:07:12

-They visit the shop

-to express their feelings.

0:07:120:07:18

-They talk to us and tell us how

-grateful they are to the charity.

0:07:180:07:24

-Rhian has her own story to share.

0:07:240:07:28

-Rhian comes from Ystalyfera

-in the Swansea Valley.

0:07:310:07:34

-She lives near her sister, Samantha.

0:07:350:07:37

-Two years ago, Samantha gave birth

-to her second child, Mason.

0:07:380:07:43

-One morning, Mason wasn't breathing.

0:07:460:07:51

-My sister rang 999.

0:07:510:07:53

-The air ambulance came out

-and landed on the street...

0:07:530:07:59

-..to allow the paramedics

-to run up to the house.

0:08:000:08:03

-They picked the baby up

-and flew him to Morriston Hospital.

0:08:030:08:08

-That morning, Rhian was at work.

0:08:120:08:14

-rushed down to the hospital.

0:08:260:08:31

-By the time they reached

-Morriston Hospital...

0:08:320:08:35

-..the news wasn't good.

0:08:350:08:37

-At eight weeks old, Mason had died.

0:08:380:08:41

-It was a tragic day

-but we were all so grateful...

0:08:420:08:45

-..to the air ambulance crew

-for trying to save Mason's life.

0:08:450:08:49

-Over the following months...

0:08:500:08:52

-..the two sisters raised money

-for Wales Air Ambulance.

0:08:520:08:56

-Rhian organized a talent show

-in Ystalyfera.

0:08:560:09:00

-To say thank you,

-we wanted to raise money...

0:09:020:09:06

-..and help in any way we could.

0:09:070:09:09

-We wanted to let everyone know

-what air ambulance crews do.

0:09:090:09:13

-Rhian carried out voluntary work

-in the charity shops' warehouse.

0:09:160:09:21

-In April 2011, she became manager

-of the shop in Swansea.

0:09:210:09:25

-I love working in the shop.

-The customers are amazing.

0:09:260:09:31

-their time to help us raise money.

0:09:310:09:38

-before her nephew died suddenly.

0:09:420:09:46

-of a huge team in Wales.

0:09:500:09:53

-We raise money to help the crews do

-an important job which saves lives.

0:09:540:10:00

-In the second half, we'll be

-on board the Swansea helicopter...

0:10:050:10:09

-..as they airlift a footballer

-who's broken his leg.

0:10:090:10:13

-In Porthcawl, a race against

-the tide to rescue a fallen climber.

0:10:140:10:19

-This helicopter in Swansea...

0:10:400:10:42

-..is launched within three minutes

0:10:420:10:47

-It can reach anywhere in South Wales

-within 20 minutes.

0:10:470:10:51

-The crew are heading

-to a football pitch in Llanelli.

0:10:510:10:55

-has a serious leg injury.

0:10:550:10:58

-It's January.

0:10:590:11:01

-The patient has been lying

-on the pitch for 45 minutes.

0:11:010:11:05

-Paramedics Jason and Chris are aware

-of the dangers of hypothermia.

0:11:050:11:09

-57, we're about a minute away

-from the location, over.

0:11:110:11:15

-Have made the people on the ground

-aware that you're en route.

0:11:170:11:20

-The vehicle's about 20 minutes away,

-over.

0:11:210:11:24

-Pilot Tom Marcus

-lands on the centre circle.

0:11:250:11:28

-The patient is in pain.

0:11:320:11:34

-He may well have broken his leg

-in two places.

0:11:340:11:37

-..swelling on this side

-of your leg...

0:11:410:11:45

-The paramedics give the footballer

-gas and air to help ease the pain.

0:11:450:11:50

-Give you some gas and air firstly.

-Just a simple dash which you inhale.

0:11:500:11:55

-Makes you feel

-a little light-headed and funny.

0:11:550:11:58

-Max was playing as a striker for

-Pwll in the Carmarthenshire league.

0:12:010:12:05

-He was through on goal

-and the goalie came out.

0:12:050:12:09

-It was a 50/50 ball.

0:12:090:12:10

-It was a fair challenge,

-but the striker came off the worst.

0:12:100:12:15

-Max needs some specialist treatment

-before being moved.

0:12:150:12:19

-The referee has called the match off

-after 67 minutes.

0:12:200:12:23

-How old are you, mate?

0:12:230:12:24

-How old are you, mate?

-

-24.

0:12:240:12:26

-I was on the touchline

-and it sounded quite nasty.

0:12:260:12:30

-I hope he'll be OK.

0:12:300:12:33

-Max will need an X-ray

-and possible surgery.

0:12:340:12:37

-The crew prepare him

-for his journey to hospital.

0:12:370:12:41

-It's an obvious fracture

-to his lower leg.

0:12:430:12:46

-We've put a needle in his hand -

-a cannula.

0:12:460:12:49

-We'll give him some IV analgesia,

-some morphine...

0:12:500:12:53

-..and anti-sickness for the flight.

0:12:530:12:55

-As night draws in,

-pilot Tom is rather concerned.

0:12:580:13:02

-The air ambulance can only land

-on a lit helipad at night.

0:13:020:13:06

-The air ambulance must leave

-in daylight or stay here overnight.

0:13:060:13:12

-With the sun about to set,

-they take off.

0:13:140:13:17

-Alright, Max.

-Have a look out the window, Max.

0:13:190:13:22

-Have a look out the window.

0:13:220:13:24

-It's a short journey to Morriston.

0:13:290:13:31

-Soon, Swansea's lights come into

-view as they approach the hospital.

0:13:310:13:36

-Do you feel OK with the morphine?

0:13:390:13:41

-D'you feel alright, Max? Yeah?

-How's your leg?

0:13:430:13:46

-Uh... still hurts a bit.

0:13:460:13:49

-We've just landed at Morriston.

0:13:530:13:56

-It was a nice flight

-for him as well.

0:13:570:13:59

-It made his day having a little

-flight after breaking his leg.

0:14:000:14:05

-Max was in hospital for three days.

0:14:120:14:15

-He's now home in Mynydd-y-Garreg.

0:14:160:14:19

-He's broken the two largest bones

-in his leg - the tibia and fibula.

0:14:190:14:23

-I was in so much pain.

0:14:240:14:26

-I was so glad to see

-the helicopter landing.

0:14:260:14:31

-Max will be in plaster

-for another month...

0:14:320:14:35

-..but he hopes to be back

-on his feet by the end of April.

0:14:360:14:40

-I hope to be back walking

-in time for my sister's wedding...

0:14:410:14:47

-..in May this year.

0:14:470:14:50

-I'd like to thank the air ambulance

-for their prompt response.

0:14:500:14:53

-Wales has some of the best locations

-to enjoy outdoor activities...

0:14:570:15:01

-..but some of the sports

-come with an element of risk.

0:15:010:15:05

-Steve Merry and Rebecca Jones....

0:15:070:15:10

-..know the rocks

-of Porthcawl's Rest Bay very well.

0:15:100:15:13

-In November 2010, Rebecca and Steve

-were here on their first date.

0:15:160:15:20

-It's a popular area for climbers.

0:15:200:15:23

-Steve is a climbing instructor

-so Rebecca was in safe hands.

0:15:230:15:27

-We'd climbed six times that day.

0:15:290:15:32

-The last climb was to be

-the final climb of the day.

0:15:320:15:37

-The couple were climbing the largest

-cliff of the day in Box Bay.

0:15:390:15:43

-They only had time for one final

-abseil before the tide came in.

0:15:430:15:49

-I abseiled down before him.

0:15:490:15:51

-Steve had secured three hooks

-in the rock to hold the ropes.

0:15:520:15:56

-If one came loose,

-another one would hold the ropes...

0:15:560:16:00

-..but something went wrong.

0:16:000:16:02

-I was at the bottom, looking up.

0:16:030:16:05

-All of a sudden,

-I could see him falling.

0:16:050:16:08

-I heard this huge crack

-when he hit the ground.

0:16:080:16:12

-Steve fell 20 feet

-and landed on his back.

0:16:120:16:16

-He tried to get up.

-I told him to wait.

0:16:160:16:19

-He needed emergency help.

0:16:210:16:23

-Without a phone,

-Rebecca had to search for help.

0:16:230:16:27

-I was screaming for someone

-to phone the ambulance.

0:16:270:16:30

-Time was running out.

-The tide was coming in.

0:16:300:16:35

-Luckily, the air ambulance

-was close to Porthcawl.

0:16:360:16:40

-Paramedic Aneurin Heath

-was on board.

0:16:400:16:44

-We flew down along the beach

-but we couldn't see anything.

0:16:440:16:50

-The pilot flew lower and lower.

0:16:500:16:52

-I was sitting in the back

-of the helicopter looking back.

0:16:530:16:58

-As we flew along the beach,

-I spotted him.

0:16:580:17:01

-Steve needed medical assistance

-but the tide was coming in.

0:17:010:17:05

-The crew knew they could be in

-danger if they landed on the beach.

0:17:060:17:10

-Pilot Grant Elgar decided to land.

0:17:100:17:14

-We decided to put the aircraft on

-the beach before the tide came in...

0:17:170:17:20

-..to keep the rotors running...

0:17:210:17:22

-..and for Aneurin to leave

-the aircraft and attend the patient.

0:17:230:17:27

-I got out of the helicopter.

0:17:270:17:29

-The tide was coming in quickly.

0:17:300:17:32

-Grant had to take off

-and land on the cliff top.

0:17:320:17:35

-Steve had some serious injuries.

0:17:350:17:37

-80% of his bones were broken.

0:17:380:17:42

-He'd broken his pelvis,

-both his legs...

0:17:430:17:46

-..and I knew he had a back injury.

-Pilot Grant Elgar and paramedic

-Phil Thomas were on the cliff top.

0:17:490:17:53

-They were liaising

-with the coastguard.

0:17:540:17:57

-Time was fast running out.

0:17:570:17:59

-It was the highest tide of the year.

0:17:590:18:01

-We only had 15 minutes.

0:18:020:18:04

-Luckily, a helicopter

-from the Chivenor RAF base...

0:18:060:18:09

-..was training nearby.

0:18:100:18:12

-Within minutes, Squadron 169

-were sending down their winch man...

0:18:140:18:19

-..to help Aneurin.

0:18:190:18:21

-The dramatic events

-were filmed on a mobile phone.

0:18:220:18:27

-Between the winch man and myself,

-we lifted him out of the water...

0:18:310:18:35

-..and found a safer place

-to rescue him from drowning.

0:18:350:18:39

-Steve was placed on a hard board

-before the Sea King returned.

0:18:400:18:45

-We were waiting

-and waiting and waiting.

0:18:450:18:48

-The tide was coming further in.

0:18:480:18:51

-By the end, we were up

-to our shoulders in water...

0:18:510:18:54

-..trying to hold Steve out of

-the water and make sure he was OK.

0:18:550:18:59

-The Sea King lifts Steve

-and the winch man to the cliff top.

0:18:590:19:03

-He's transferred immediately

-to the air ambulance.

0:19:070:19:11

-He was in a serious condition and

-needed immediate medical attention.

0:19:110:19:16

-Steve was also suffering

-from hypothermia.

0:19:190:19:23

-Hypothermia can actually help

-the body repair itself.

0:19:230:19:28

-Steve needed medical attention

-to stop any internal bleeding.

0:19:280:19:33

-He'd broken most of the bones

-in his body, including his spine.

0:19:330:19:38

-He was in a coma for three weeks.

0:19:380:19:40

-Steve stayed in Morriston Hospital

-for three months...

0:19:420:19:46

-..but he's now on the road

-to recovery.

0:19:460:19:48

-Fifteen months later, Rebecca

-and Steve are back in Rest Bay.

0:19:510:19:56

-Steve suffers daily pain...

0:19:570:19:59

-..but he's determined to recover.

0:20:000:20:02

-The doctors say

-he's moved on quickly.

0:20:030:20:07

-For him,

-he's not recovering quickly enough.

0:20:070:20:10

-Steve will need many more

-operations, but this couple know...

0:20:110:20:16

-..that the heroic effort of

-the crews that day saved his life.

0:20:170:20:21

-I think he'll be fine, eventually.

-It's just going to take some time.

0:20:210:20:26

-In November, the Helimed 57 team

-visited the House of Lords...

0:20:350:20:39

-..for the Ambulance Service

-awards ceremony.

0:20:390:20:42

-I'd like to welcome you to this,

-our awards ceremony.

0:20:420:20:48

-Along with the Sea King, Helimed 57

-won the Team of the Year award...

0:20:480:20:53

-..for rescuing Steve Merry

-from the sea.

0:20:530:20:56

0:20:560:21:00

-..consisting

-of Captain Grant Elgar...

0:21:000:21:03

-..Paramedic Phil Thomas

-and Paramedic Aneurin Heath.

0:21:030:21:07

-It's nice to receive

-some recognition.

0:21:140:21:17

-The three of us

-and the boys from the RAF.

0:21:170:21:21

-Gaining this recognition is

-important for Wales Air Ambulance.

0:21:210:21:27

-It lets people know that

-their money is being spent wisely.

0:21:270:21:32

-We need to shock again.

0:21:390:21:41

-All clear.

0:21:410:21:43

-Clear.

0:21:430:21:44

-David Levers's heart

-stopped working in January.

0:21:450:21:48

-The ambulance crews

-gave him 15 shocks.

0:21:490:21:51

-We filmed the events as the

-helicopter flew to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:21:510:21:56

-Today, David Levers

-is home in Llan Ffestiniog.

0:21:580:22:01

-He stayed in the intensive care unit

-for almost two months.

0:22:020:22:07

-I'm recovering

-but I'm not back to where I was...

0:22:070:22:13

-..before the recent heart attacks.

0:22:130:22:17

-That will take months

-and months and months.

0:22:180:22:22

-He'd had a heart attack before.

0:22:220:22:25

-When his heart stopped working

-this time...

0:22:250:22:29

-..the family feared the worst.

0:22:300:22:32

-When our son arrived,

-the ambulance was outside.

0:22:320:22:36

-It broke his heart.

-We weren't holding out much hope.

0:22:360:22:40

-It's a 75-minute road journey

-from Llan Ffestiniog to Bangor.

0:22:420:22:47

-David knows how crucial the air

-ambulance involvement was that day.

0:22:470:22:52

-You have 60 minutes -

-the golden hour.

0:22:520:22:55

-After that, whatever damage the

-heart attack has done, that's it.

0:22:560:23:01

-If the air ambulance

-hadn't been here on the third...

0:23:020:23:07

-..I wouldn't be here now.

0:23:070:23:09

-On next week's programme...

-when a gas canister exploded.

-Concerns for the builder

-who fell from scaffolding.

0:23:200:23:23

-When you fall from a height...

0:23:240:23:26

-..the worst injury is

-breaking your back or brain damage.
