-Wales's landscape is truly dramatic.

0:00:190:00:21

-Thousands of people

-enjoy outdoor pursuits every year.

0:00:220:00:26

-But if you run into difficulty

-in remote locations...

0:00:260:00:29

-..transport to the nearest hospital

-may prove challenging.

0:00:300:00:34

-That's when

-the Wales Air Ambulance...

0:00:340:00:37

-..can make the difference

-between life and death.

0:00:370:00:41

-Our cameras have been

-following the paramedics in red...

0:00:410:00:45

-..as they respond

-to emergency calls.

0:00:450:00:47

-Special cameras

-have been installed on board...

0:00:480:00:51

-..to capture what

-the crews see on their missions.

0:00:510:00:55

-Tonight on Ambiwlans Awyr...

0:00:550:00:57

-..the North Wales crew deals with a

-motorcyclist injured in a collision.

0:00:570:01:03

-He was thrown over the rear end, and

-we suspect he's injured his pelvis.

0:01:030:01:08

-We hear from the workman who was

-injured on the Brecon Beacons.

0:01:090:01:13

-I phoned 999 and told them...

0:01:140:01:16

-..we were in a remote spot

-and needed a helicopter.

0:01:160:01:20

-And harsh weather

-makes it difficult for the crews...

0:01:210:01:24

-..to reach some casualties.

0:01:240:01:26

-A small scratch.

0:01:270:01:28

-A small scratch.

-

-Her speech is impaired...

0:01:280:01:30

-..and we suspect

-it's the dreaded stroke.

0:01:300:01:34

-It's Sunday afternoon and

-Helimed 61 is above Merionethshire.

0:01:400:01:45

-A motorbike

-has collided with a car near Bala.

0:01:450:01:49

-You've got wires

-crossing the road there.

0:01:490:01:52

-On duty are paramedics

-Tony Stevens and Ian Thomas.

0:01:530:01:56

-Today's pilot is Bob Kendall.

0:01:570:01:59

-OK, Bob?

-I'm just going to stand down, mate.

0:01:590:02:02

-The Bala ambulance

-is already at the scene.

0:02:090:02:12

-Hello. Are you alright?

0:02:140:02:16

-The ambulance crew...

0:02:160:02:18

-..has begun assessing

-the motorcyclist.

0:02:190:02:22

-He's in a critical condition.

0:02:220:02:24

-He's in a critical condition.

-

-Mid femur.

0:02:240:02:26

-Possibly pelvic. He's in pain

-when we try to move his leg.

0:02:260:02:30

-Ken Irving was returning home to the

-Midlands when the accident happened.

0:02:300:02:36

-Paramedics suspect he's broken

-several bones in his body.

0:02:360:02:40

-We have a pelvic splint...

0:02:410:02:43

-..and a traction splint, so we'll

-put them on once you've finished.

0:02:440:02:49

-They fear a vein

-in his leg is constricted...

0:02:500:02:53

-..preventing blood flow to his foot.

0:02:530:02:57

-There's a lot of swelling.

-Is there a distal pulse?

0:02:570:03:00

-Ian checks for a pulse

-in Ken's foot.

0:03:000:03:03

-If he doesn't find a pulse,

-the leg is in danger.

0:03:030:03:07

-I've found a pulse.

-He looks very ashen.

0:03:070:03:10

-His leg is very grey.

0:03:100:03:12

-The pulse is weak, which means

-the blood flow is restricted.

0:03:180:03:22

-He must be

-taken to hospital at once.

0:03:220:03:24

-How old are you, Ken?

0:03:250:03:26

-How old are you, Ken?

-

-58.

0:03:260:03:28

-Normally fit and healthy?

0:03:280:03:29

-Normally fit and healthy?

-

-Yeah.

0:03:290:03:31

-Been to the doctor for anything?

-Nothing, no?

0:03:310:03:34

-I'm just going to pop a needle

-in your arm. Is that alright?

0:03:340:03:39

-Ken needs morphine to ease the pain.

0:03:390:03:42

-Nothing at the moment.

0:03:430:03:45

-What I'm going to do, Ken, we've

-got to stabilize your pelvis...

0:03:450:03:50

-..and get you on the board,

-but we'll give you pain relief.

0:03:500:03:54

-I'll get the morphine in you now.

0:03:540:03:57

-It's possible the casualty

-has broken his pelvis and hip.

0:03:590:04:03

-These injuries can be serious.

0:04:040:04:06

-These injuries can be serious.

-

-Sorry about all the questions.

0:04:060:04:08

-We must be very careful...

0:04:080:04:11

-..because

-these kind of injuries can be fatal.

0:04:110:04:14

-The crew must use a thick strap

-called a pelvic splint...

0:04:140:04:19

-..to stabilize Ken's pelvis.

0:04:190:04:22

-We must do something

-on your left leg.

0:04:220:04:25

-It'll hurt for a moment and then

-it'll relieve the pain for you.

0:04:250:04:29

-But it's important that we do it.

0:04:300:04:32

-It was obvious that he'd broken

-his femur in his left leg.

0:04:320:04:36

-We carry a traction splint

-on the air ambulance...

0:04:360:04:40

-..which keeps the two bones together

-when attached to the leg.

0:04:400:04:46

-It stops

-internal bleeding in the leg.

0:04:470:04:49

-Before it's attached,

-the leg must be straightened.

0:04:540:04:57

-Scream if you need to.

0:04:580:04:59

-Scream if you need to.

-

-Argh!

0:04:590:05:01

-Good lad.

0:05:010:05:03

-OK, mate, that's it.

-That's all we need.

0:05:060:05:09

-It's important that he doesn't

-bend his back with such an injury.

0:05:100:05:15

-A plastic spinal board is

-the best way of keeping him stable.

0:05:150:05:19

-Everyone ready?

-Good. One, two, three.

0:05:210:05:25

-That's it. Good man, Ken.

0:05:250:05:28

-Hold him there for a sec.

0:05:280:05:30

-It's on a bit of leg.

0:05:330:05:34

-Seven minutes later, Ken

-is transferred to Ysbyty Maelor...

0:05:350:05:39

-..where medics confirm that he's

-broken bones in his leg and spine...

0:05:390:05:44

-..and dislocated his hip.

0:05:440:05:46

-One, two, three, lift.

0:05:460:05:49

-One of the first to arrive at the

-scene was paramedic Ludwik Mrowiec.

0:05:530:05:58

-He's sure this won't be the last

-time he'll be called to this spot.

0:05:580:06:04

-We've been here several times

-before with motorbikes.

0:06:090:06:13

-He was thrown over

-the rear end of the car.

0:06:130:06:16

-We suspect

-he's injured his pelvis...

0:06:160:06:19

-..and possibly his femur.

0:06:190:06:22

-Thank you very much for your help.

0:06:240:06:26

-OK, you're well clear, Tony.

0:06:270:06:29

-Ken is now recovering, though

-he's not yet back on his bike.

0:06:330:06:37

-At any one time here in Wales...

0:06:400:06:43

-..350 of these vehicles...

0:06:430:06:45

-..and more than 1,800 paramedics

-and technicians are on standby.

0:06:450:06:51

-It's these crews that call

-on the air ambulance for assistance.

0:06:510:06:55

-I visited the Bala Ambulance Service

-to meet one of the crews.

0:06:560:07:00

-It's 8.00am in Bala and the day crew

-prepares for a 10-hour shift.

0:07:030:07:08

-Have you checked the morphine?

0:07:100:07:12

-Have you checked the morphine?

-

-Yes, Ray. Everything's fine.

0:07:120:07:14

-Paramedic Ludwik Mrowiec and

-ambulance technician Ray Thomas...

0:07:150:07:20

-..have worked together

-in Bala for seven years.

0:07:200:07:24

-Will you pass me

-some of those stabbers?

0:07:240:07:27

-Thank you, Lud.

0:07:300:07:32

-Between the two of them,

-they have 50 years of experience.

0:07:320:07:36

-They say every day is different.

0:07:360:07:40

-When there are children involved,

-it can be a difficult job to do.

0:07:400:07:45

-But then again, there are highs...

0:07:450:07:47

-..such as when a baby is born

-in the back of the ambulance.

0:07:480:07:51

-If there are no complications.

0:07:520:07:53

-If there are no complications.

-

-Yes.

0:07:530:07:55

-That's the nice part of the job.

0:07:560:07:58

-Bala's ambulance service serves

-a rural area in south Gwynedd.

0:08:010:08:05

-The pair say they get

-the most unexpected calls at times.

0:08:050:08:09

-I heard about one person

-who'd phoned 999...

0:08:130:08:16

-..because his fingers

-were turning black.

0:08:160:08:19

-He'd been reading a newspaper!

0:08:200:08:21

-He'd been reading a newspaper!

-

-The men say...

0:08:210:08:23

-..they've seen many changes

-over the years, especially Ray...

0:08:240:08:28

-..who joined in the late 1970s.

0:08:280:08:30

-There was no such thing

-as helicopters when I started.

0:08:310:08:34

-You drove and sounded the siren.

0:08:340:08:37

-You drove and sounded the siren.

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:08:370:08:39

-And rode horses!

0:08:400:08:42

-But seriously,

-how have things improved?

0:08:450:08:48

-I'm sure the air ambulance

-has made a world of difference.

0:08:480:08:52

-Yes, especially in rural areas.

0:08:520:08:54

-As we've already seen

-this evening...

0:08:550:08:58

-..they work closely

-with the air ambulance paramedics.

0:08:580:09:03

-And we have

-a traction splint on board.

0:09:030:09:06

-Ludwik and Ray were present

-when the air ambulance assisted Ken.

0:09:070:09:12

-We depend a great deal on them

-and they depend on us too.

0:09:130:09:17

-We help each other out.

0:09:170:09:18

-We help each other out.

-

-How does the partnership work?

0:09:180:09:20

-We usually arrive on scene

-around the same time...

0:09:210:09:24

-..but sometimes we get there first.

0:09:250:09:27

-We assess the casualty

-and do what needs to be done...

0:09:270:09:33

-..to make sure they're ready to fly

-straightaway in order to save time.

0:09:340:09:39

-They land, transfer the casualty

-and off they go.

0:09:400:09:43

-Working together

-is the nature of our jobs.

0:09:440:09:47

-We do the same work,

-except they're in a helicopter...

0:09:520:09:55

-..and we're in an ambulance.

0:09:560:09:58

-The work is the same but

-the mode of transport is different.

0:09:580:10:02

-There's no rotor

-on top of the ambulance!

0:10:020:10:05

-In Part 2, treacherous snow...

0:10:080:10:10

-..creates havoc throughout Wales.

0:10:100:10:13

-And a man is badly injured

-when he's crushed by a tree trunk.

0:10:140:10:18

-Due to the pressure,

-it went off like a gun.

0:10:190:10:21

-January, and Wales

-is covered in a blanket of snow.

0:10:400:10:44

-Rural roads are impassable.

0:10:480:10:51

-Some areas have ground to a halt

-due to the treacherous weather.

0:10:510:10:56

-But with people getting into

-difficulty after venturing out...

0:10:560:11:01

-..the demand for emergency services

-is higher than usual.

0:11:010:11:04

-Swansea Airbase

-on the Gower peninsula.

0:11:070:11:10

-Snow and ice make it difficult to

-get the helicopter to the helipad.

0:11:100:11:15

-It's three degrees below freezing.

0:11:200:11:23

-Water and ethanol is pumped into

-the engine to prevent freezing.

0:11:230:11:27

-Experienced pilot

-Tom Marcus knows...

0:11:270:11:31

-..that caution must be exercised.

0:11:310:11:33

-We're taking more precautions,

-so any landing sites...

0:11:340:11:37

-..especially

-if they're snow-covered...

0:11:380:11:40

-..you must be wary

-of what's beneath.

0:11:410:11:43

-The North Wales crew

-has had to deal with the snow too.

0:11:490:11:53

-Pilot Bob Kendall and paramedics

-Carl Hudson and Ian Thomas...

0:11:530:11:58

-..are responding

-to an emergency call.

0:11:580:12:01

-Helimed 61

-now mobile towards Y Fron.

0:12:010:12:03

-Be about three minutes. Over.

0:12:040:12:06

-We're on our way

-to the Dyffryn Nantlle area...

0:12:070:12:10

-..to assist a woman in her eighties

-who's suffered a stroke.

0:12:100:12:14

-We know nothing further

-at the moment.

0:12:140:12:17

-We'll probably arrive the same time

-as the response vehicle.

0:12:170:12:21

-Although the crew

-has been given the location...

0:12:220:12:25

-..it's difficult to tell which is

-the correct address from the air.

0:12:250:12:31

-Hello!

0:12:470:12:49

-As Ian enters the house,

-Carl stays with the helicopter...

0:12:520:12:56

-..until the blades

-have stopped rotating.

0:12:560:12:59

-Who's the lady?

0:13:000:13:01

-Who's the lady?

-

-Mam.

0:13:010:13:03

-What's your name?

0:13:030:13:04

-What's your name?

-

-Mair.

0:13:040:13:06

-What's happened, Mair?

-Do you feel unwell?

0:13:060:13:09

-Mair Jones

-has been ill for a few hours.

0:13:110:13:14

-She's been vomiting, is light-headed

-and is having trouble walking.

0:13:140:13:19

-In spite of the weather,

-paramedic Alwyn Roberts...

0:13:200:13:24

-..arrived at the scene

-in his rapid-response vehicle.

0:13:240:13:28

-I want you to squeeze my fingers

-as hard as you can.

0:13:280:13:32

-I'll give you some oxygen.

0:13:320:13:34

-There we go. Slowly does it.

0:13:340:13:36

-Listen to me, Mair.

0:13:370:13:39

-Can you raise your right leg for me?

0:13:390:13:42

-She had paralysis in her left leg...

0:13:420:13:45

-..and the left side

-of her face was drooping.

0:13:450:13:48

-The fact it wasn't improving

-set alarm bells ringing.

0:13:480:13:52

-Can I take your watch off?

0:13:530:13:55

-It's probable

-that Mair has suffered a stroke.

0:13:550:13:58

-This occurs when blood flow

-to the head is restricted...

0:13:580:14:02

-..and a lack of oxygen to the brain.

0:14:030:14:05

-..and a lack of oxygen to the brain.

-

-I'm taking your temperature.

0:14:050:14:07

-36.3.

0:14:090:14:10

-Like many other patients,

-the 86-year-old woman...

0:14:110:14:14

-..doesn't want to leave her home.

0:14:150:14:18

-She doesn't want to go to hospital.

0:14:180:14:21

-Come on, it's a nice day.

-We'll have a chat on the way.

0:14:210:14:25

-By myself?

0:14:250:14:27

-By myself?

-

-With me.

0:14:270:14:29

-There's no room for the ladies.

0:14:300:14:32

-You'll be fine with Ian.

0:14:330:14:35

-You're fine with me.

0:14:350:14:38

-Can I put a needle in your hand in

-case I need to give you something?

0:14:390:14:44

-A small scratch.

0:14:450:14:47

-It started this morning.

0:14:470:14:50

-She's taken a turn for the worse

-and her speech is impaired.

0:14:500:14:54

-We suspect

-the dreaded stroke is the culprit.

0:14:550:14:58

-I'm going to give you saltwater.

0:14:590:15:01

-A stroke can be very serious.

0:15:010:15:05

-It changes people's lives

-and also kills.

0:15:050:15:08

-The ambulance crew

-has battled the elements too...

0:15:110:15:15

-..but it's quicker

-to transport Mair by helicopter.

0:15:150:15:18

-The lads will look after you,

-don't you worry.

0:15:210:15:25

-Don't worry. Is it this side

-that's been affected?

0:15:250:15:29

-The crew uses a special chair

-to carry Mair from her house.

0:15:300:15:34

-Mair will be in Bangor

-in less than five minutes.

0:15:420:15:45

-There we go. A-1.

0:15:480:15:52

-After being treated

-at Ysbyty Gwynedd...

0:15:530:15:57

-..she is currently

-recovering at home.

0:15:570:16:00

-The council have done a

-remarkable job clearing the roads...

0:16:000:16:04

-..but remote areas are the problem.

0:16:040:16:07

-We can't get the ambulance near

-these small roads and rural estates.

0:16:070:16:13

-It's not a problem

-for the helicopter, of course.

0:16:130:16:17

-It can land in the middle of these

-estates to assist the response cars.

0:16:170:16:21

-On that day, as you've seen, there

-was a blanket of snow everywhere.

0:16:220:16:26

-Ambulance crews struggle

-to respond to every emergency call.

0:16:270:16:31

-That's when

-the helicopter comes into its own.

0:16:320:16:35

-Usually, this helicopter carries

-one pilot and two paramedics...

0:16:400:16:44

-..to deliver

-urgent medical assistance...

0:16:440:16:47

-..or to reach remote locations.

0:16:470:16:50

-When Wayne Morgan was injured

-in the Brecon Beacons...

0:16:500:16:54

-..he needed urgent assistance.

0:16:540:16:56

-The slopes of Pen Y Fan

-in the Brecon Beacons.

0:17:020:17:05

-Brothers Wayne and Cerith Morgan...

0:17:050:17:07

-..were working

-in a forest on the mountain.

0:17:080:17:11

-It was a very bleak day.

0:17:130:17:15

-It was pouring with rain and foggy.

0:17:150:17:19

-That day,

-Wayne was operating the chainsaw.

0:17:190:17:23

-I took the chainsaw

-to one of the trees.

0:17:250:17:27

-The boys were winching

-across the way from me.

0:17:280:17:31

-The brothers run a woodcutting

-business in the Swansea valley.

0:17:310:17:36

-They were clearing

-over two acres of woodland that day.

0:17:360:17:39

-The size of the trees made it hell.

0:17:390:17:42

-The poles were a metre and beyond.

0:17:420:17:45

-They were clearing trees

-that had been blown over.

0:17:460:17:49

-The work is dangerous due to

-the remaining tension in the trunks.

0:17:490:17:54

-I start cutting away from me...

0:17:540:17:56

-..depending

-on where the pressure is.

0:17:570:18:00

-As Wayne began cutting

-the trunk of the tree...

0:18:030:18:06

-..it flew at him like a bullet.

0:18:060:18:08

-There was so much pressure,

-it went off like a gun.

0:18:100:18:13

-He took a nasty hit and his leg

-got trapped under the trunk.

0:18:180:18:22

-He was in a great deal of pain and

-knew he'd been seriously injured.

0:18:240:18:29

-One of the boys came over

-to check on me and pull me out.

0:18:300:18:34

-He freed my leg and straightened it.

0:18:340:18:37

-What's happened?

0:18:380:18:40

-What's happened?

-

-My leg! My leg!

0:18:400:18:42

-He's a tough bloke...

0:18:420:18:44

-..so I knew if he couldn't move,

-it was serious.

0:18:440:18:48

-The men moved the trunk, but

-Wayne's leg had to be kept straight.

0:18:480:18:53

-He shouted to the lads,

-"Cut me two splints.

0:18:540:18:56

-"Stick them on

-and I'll walk out of here."

0:18:570:18:59

-HE GROANS IN PAIN

0:19:000:19:02

-It wasn't safe

-for them to move Wayne.

0:19:020:19:04

-He needed urgent medical attention.

0:19:050:19:07

-I phoned 999, despite

-not having much of a signal...

0:19:070:19:11

-..but there was

-just enough that day.

0:19:110:19:14

-I told them we were working

-in a remote spot...

0:19:140:19:18

-..and that we needed a helicopter.

0:19:180:19:21

-They would never

-have moved him without a helicopter.

0:19:210:19:25

-That day, paramedics Chris Connor

-and Gareth Williams were on duty...

0:19:290:19:33

-..at Swansea Airbase.

0:19:340:19:36

-From the grid reference given...

0:19:390:19:41

-..we knew the incident

-was in an inaccessible place.

0:19:410:19:45

-Crews are regularly called

-to remote locations...

0:19:460:19:49

-..but this spot proved challenging.

0:19:490:19:52

-He was lying halfway down

-a mountainside strewn with trees.

0:19:520:19:57

-They couldn't land

-close to where I was lying...

0:19:580:20:01

-..in case the brash

-got caught in the blades.

0:20:010:20:04

-They had to land

-three fields away from me.

0:20:050:20:08

-We made our way down

-the mountainside to where he was...

0:20:120:20:16

-..climbed over a barbed-wire fence

-and through a ditch and some trees.

0:20:160:20:21

-He had serious injuries

-to both legs.

0:20:210:20:23

-Wayne had to be treated immediately.

0:20:260:20:28

-They put a splint on me.

0:20:310:20:34

-There was a danger he was bleeding

-internally from his pelvic bone...

0:20:350:20:40

-..so they secured the bone tightly

-with a special strap.

0:20:400:20:44

-But it was too far to carry him

-to the air ambulance.

0:20:440:20:48

-The crew needed assistance.

0:20:480:20:50

-If we'd have waited

-for mountain rescue...

0:20:500:20:54

-..or the ambulance service to come,

-it would've been hours.

0:20:540:20:59

-They knew the only way

-they could get him out of here...

0:20:590:21:03

-..was with the Sea King.

0:21:040:21:06

-The paramedics alerted the RAF.

0:21:060:21:09

-It was atrocious weather...

0:21:090:21:11

-..but fortunately, the yellow

-helicopter arrived in half an hour.

0:21:110:21:16

-The Sea King turned up

-and off I went!

0:21:180:21:21

-The rope looked very thin...

0:21:240:21:27

-..but I knew I was in safe hands.

0:21:270:21:29

-Wayne was winched to safety...

0:21:290:21:32

-..and taken to hospital

-in Merthyr Tydfil.

0:21:320:21:35

-It took 10 minutes.

0:21:360:21:38

-It took 10 minutes.

-

-His knee had been crushed...

0:21:380:21:40

-..and he'd broken his tibia

-and fibula in his left leg.

0:21:400:21:44

-It's been nine months

-since the accident.

0:21:440:21:47

-There's not much damage there.

0:21:470:21:49

-They cut all the way down.

0:21:500:21:52

-They gave me scaffolding

-first of all.

0:21:520:21:55

-Two holes in the bone here

-and two in my shin.

0:21:550:21:59

-I wore scaffolding for a month.

0:21:590:22:01

-That's the only scar I have.

0:22:010:22:04

-It's barely noticeable, really.

0:22:040:22:07

-It moves well.

-Everything's in working order.

0:22:080:22:11

-The brothers are grateful

-to the two helicopter crews...

0:22:110:22:15

-..that rescued Wayne

-in the Brecon Beacons.

0:22:150:22:18

-You're out in the mountains.

0:22:200:22:22

-Without an air ambulance,

-you couldn't do the job.

0:22:220:22:25

-I could've lost my leg

-if it weren't for the air ambulance.

0:22:260:22:30

-They saved my leg.

0:22:300:22:32

-I was lucky.

0:22:350:22:37

-They're on standby

-and they do their job well.

0:22:370:22:40

-Next week on Ambiwlans Awyr...

0:22:460:22:48

-..it's a race against time

-to save a boy's life...

0:22:480:22:51

-..after a boat's propeller

-rips through his leg.

0:22:510:22:54

-My insides were outside

-and blood was squirting everywhere.

0:22:550:22:59

-And the story

-of the three-year-old girl...

0:23:000:23:03

-..who regularly relies

-on the air ambulance.

0:23:030:23:06

-Knowing they're there

-makes you feel safe.
