-Every year, the Wales Air Ambulance

-responds to 2,000 emergency calls.

0:00:200:00:25

-When accidents happen in remote

-and isolated rural locations...

0:00:250:00:30

-..their contribution is vital.

0:00:300:00:32

-This is the story of the helicopter

-crews and their casualties.

0:00:320:00:37

-Tonight on Ambiwlans Awyr...

0:00:400:00:43

-..a mountain biker

-is injured in North Wales.

0:00:430:00:46

-Aargh!

0:00:460:00:48

-Wintry weather

-causes problems in Betws-y-Coed.

0:00:510:00:55

-The wife slipped on a patch of ice.

-She's in a great deal of pain.

0:00:570:01:02

-And a young mother

-who needed an urgent transfusion...

0:01:030:01:06

-..after losing pints of blood.

0:01:070:01:09

-Without the air ambulance...

0:01:090:01:11

-..Rachel would've died.

0:01:110:01:14

-February,

-the Horseshoe Pass in Denbighshire.

0:01:210:01:24

-A group of friends, among them Dan

-Lewis, was climbing the mountain.

0:01:240:01:30

-It was cold but

-it was nice weather for walking.

0:01:300:01:33

-All of a sudden,

-I slipped on stones.

0:01:340:01:36

-I knew straightaway...

0:01:380:01:40

-..that I'd done something serious.

0:01:400:01:43

-I heard a big crack

-and I was in a lot of pain.

0:01:440:01:47

-Dan had seriously injured his leg

-and needed urgent assistance.

0:01:470:01:52

-A friend dialled 999.

0:01:530:01:55

-We didn't know the exact location

-to give them a grid reference.

0:01:550:01:59

-I was relieved when two mountain

-bikers with a map came to my aid.

0:01:590:02:05

-One of the bikers had a camera

-on his bike and continued filming.

0:02:050:02:10

-They were two miles

-from the nearest road...

0:02:100:02:13

-..and a fair distance

-for an ambulance crew to walk.

0:02:130:02:17

-The Welshpool

-air ambulance was alerted.

0:02:200:02:23

-Paramedics Rhodri Thomas

-and Ben Seabourne...

0:02:240:02:27

-..and pilot Pete Tomkins

-are on board.

0:02:280:02:30

-I'm assuming they're on this path.

0:02:300:02:32

-The Horseshoe Pass

-is across the way there.

0:02:330:02:36

-Despite the troublesome, low-lying

-cloud, they continue their mission.

0:02:370:02:42

-Visual, our nine o'clock.

0:02:420:02:44

-Two paramedics have managed

-to walk to the accident scene.

0:02:470:02:51

-But the uneven terrain

-makes landing difficult.

0:02:540:02:57

-After the second attempt,

-they land safely.

0:02:580:03:01

-You're clear to the front.

0:03:100:03:13

-They have a long

-and steep climb ahead of them.

0:03:180:03:22

-These paramedics

-are required to be reasonably fit.

0:03:220:03:26

-Hello, mate. How are you doing?

0:03:300:03:32

-Paramedic Rhodri examines the leg

-to determine the injury.

0:03:340:03:38

-His lower leg.

0:03:420:03:44

-The bone

-is pushing against his skin.

0:03:460:03:49

-After administering a dose

-of morphine, Dan must be moved.

0:03:490:03:53

-Dan, I'm not going to lie to you.

-It's going to hurt when we move you.

0:03:560:04:00

-Hopefully the morphine

-will take the edge off that.

0:04:000:04:04

-It's cold on the mountainside.

0:04:050:04:07

-Paramedics fear the casualty

-may develop hypothermia.

0:04:070:04:11

-I'm going to take your shoe off.

0:04:130:04:16

-Aargh!

0:04:160:04:17

-Aargh!

-

-Alright. OK. Bear with us.

0:04:170:04:19

-Bear with us. Well done. All done.

0:04:190:04:21

-Good stuff. Fabulous. Brilliant.

0:04:220:04:24

-It was alright after the morphine...

0:04:260:04:29

-..but when they moved my leg,

-it hurt and I was in a lot of pain.

0:04:290:04:34

-I've got your leg. Nice and easy.

0:04:340:04:36

-Whoa, whoa!

0:04:360:04:38

-Despite the urgency,

-they must be very careful.

0:04:420:04:46

-The slope is steep

-and there's a strong gale blowing.

0:04:460:04:50

-You come here and

-we'll have to hold the stretcher.

0:04:510:04:54

-Did you get

-a distal pulse when we moved him?

0:04:540:04:57

-The crew must ensure

-there is blood flow to the foot.

0:05:000:05:04

-If there's no pulse, it's possible

-the casualty may lose his foot.

0:05:040:05:09

-Let me just check for a distal

-pulse again when we moved him.

0:05:090:05:13

-He currently has a pulse, but that

-could change when they move him.

0:05:140:05:19

-I'll have to pull this

-really tightly.

0:05:190:05:22

-That's fine. Go for it.

0:05:220:05:24

-One on each corner, guys.

0:05:260:05:28

-One facing.

0:05:290:05:30

-Aargh!

0:05:310:05:33

-One, two, three, lift.

0:05:330:05:35

-They must

-exercise caution once again.

0:05:390:05:42

-If one of them were to fall,

-Dan could suffer further injury.

0:05:430:05:46

-Cheers, guys. Thanks for your help.

0:05:500:05:53

-OK, mate?

0:05:540:05:55

-OK, mate?

-

-Yeah.

0:05:550:05:56

-Thanks a lot, guys.

0:05:580:06:00

-It was a relief

-to hear the helicopter.

0:06:000:06:03

-I knew I was going to be OK.

0:06:030:06:06

-Dan was transferred

-to Ysbyty Maelor within 10 minutes.

0:06:090:06:14

-Fair dos, they tried everything

-to get there, didn't they?

0:06:150:06:19

-Dan broke his tibia and fibula.

0:06:220:06:24

-But now he's back on his feet.

0:06:250:06:27

-I'm back at work

-and off the crutches...

0:06:270:06:30

-..but I might need

-another operation.

0:06:300:06:32

-He's had a metal rod inserted

-to strengthen his leg.

0:06:350:06:39

-He's grateful to the helicopter crew

-for rescuing him.

0:06:390:06:43

-A big thank you to everyone.

0:06:430:06:45

-A fantastic service

-to get me off the mountain.

0:06:450:06:48

-Specialist life-saving equipment

-is carried on board the helicopter.

0:06:490:06:54

-The challenge

-for pilots and paramedics...

0:06:540:06:57

-..is to reach casualties swiftly

-since every second counts.

0:06:570:07:02

-It's mid-December, and Helimed 61

-is hovering above Betws-y-Coed...

0:07:050:07:10

-..in the Snowdonia National Park.

0:07:110:07:12

-..in the Snowdonia National Park.

-

-There's an entrance as well.

0:07:120:07:14

-A woman has slipped on ice

-and is lying on the ground.

0:07:170:07:21

-You're clear, Bob.

0:07:220:07:23

-Someone's walking away on the left.

0:07:240:07:26

-On duty today are pilot Bob Kendall

-and paramedics Tony Stevens...

0:07:270:07:31

-..and Ian Thomas.

0:07:320:07:34

-Soon as we're down, I'll get out.

0:07:350:07:38

-They've landed a stone's throw

-away from the casualty.

0:07:420:07:46

-Hello. Are you OK?

-Is it nice down there?

0:07:470:07:51

-I'm very pleased that we

-contribute to the Air Ambulance.

0:07:530:07:57

-Payback time!

0:07:570:07:59

-Mair Jones and her husband were

-Christmas shopping when she fell.

0:07:590:08:04

-We were enjoying ourselves...

0:08:090:08:11

-..and admiring

-the covering of snow and so on...

0:08:110:08:15

-..when the wife slipped

-on a patch of ice...

0:08:150:08:19

-..and fell on her back.

0:08:190:08:21

-We'll examine you in the helicopter.

-It's too cold to undress you.

0:08:210:08:26

-Watch you don't slip too.

-We've only enough room for one!

0:08:260:08:30

-It's possible

-she's broken her ankle...

0:08:300:08:34

-..but because of the cold weather...

0:08:340:08:37

-..paramedics fear

-her condition may worsen.

0:08:370:08:40

-This lady's got known problems with

-her leg. She slipped on the ice.

0:08:400:08:45

-She slipped on the ice.

0:08:450:08:47

-Query fracture

-to her right lateral malleolus.

0:08:480:08:51

-I'm not going to strip her down now,

-but she's complaining of pain.

0:08:510:08:56

-Stretcher her across.

0:08:560:08:58

-It's still cold in Betws-y-Coed.

0:08:580:09:01

-It's feared the casualty

-may develop hypothermia...

0:09:010:09:04

-..which kills

-10 people a year in Britain.

0:09:050:09:07

-You're not the first to slip today.

0:09:080:09:10

-People have been admitted to Bangor.

0:09:100:09:13

-Can you bend your knee at all?

0:09:200:09:22

-Does that stop you from doing it?

0:09:220:09:24

-Yes.

0:09:240:09:26

-You won't have to walk on it.

0:09:290:09:31

-The paramedic in the rapid-response

-unit has given her pain relief...

0:09:310:09:36

-..and put her leg into a splint.

0:09:360:09:39

-..and put her leg into a splint.

-

-I'll give you a hand, don't worry.

0:09:390:09:41

-Watch out.

0:09:440:09:46

-Ouch! I have cramp in my leg!

-At the top of this leg.

0:09:470:09:50

-That wasn't Dylan, was it?

0:09:500:09:52

-You're not having a good day here.

0:09:520:09:55

-It was Dylan!

0:09:550:09:57

-And again.

0:09:590:10:01

-Lie down.

0:10:020:10:03

-He's got my handbag.

0:10:030:10:05

-He's got my handbag.

-

-It's not my colour. You're safe.

0:10:050:10:07

-I'll just put this on top, if I can.

0:10:120:10:15

-Are you alright there?

0:10:170:10:19

-The couple from Anglesey were

-relieved to see the helicopter.

0:10:190:10:24

-I know now just how invaluable

-the Air Ambulance Service is.

0:10:240:10:29

-Some years back,

-we went to a fundraising event.

0:10:290:10:32

-I can see where the money goes.

-It's vital.

0:10:330:10:35

-Thank you, Dyl!

0:10:360:10:38

-Merry Christmas.

0:10:400:10:42

-It's only a short journey

-to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

0:10:420:10:46

-Clear right and rear.

0:10:470:10:49

-Be about eight minutes.

0:10:490:10:50

-Be about eight minutes.

-

-Thanks, Bob.

0:10:500:10:51

-How are you doing there?

0:10:520:10:54

-Fine.

0:10:540:10:55

-It's easier to take you to Bangor

-since you live in Llanfair.

0:10:560:10:59

-It's a shame you can't see anything.

0:11:000:11:02

-The view from up here

-is spectacular.

0:11:030:11:05

-I'm sure!

0:11:050:11:07

-Later in the programme, we'll

-return to check on Mair's condition.

0:11:070:11:12

-Still to come tonight, Helimed 61

-is back near the Horseshoe Pass.

0:11:170:11:22

-It was vital he kept as still as

-possible to avoid further injury.

0:11:220:11:27

-And the story of the young mother

-who lost pints of blood...

0:11:290:11:33

-..and needed an urgent transfusion.

-With more and more of us

-enjoying outdoor pursuits...

0:11:500:11:53

-..there is more chance of injury.

0:11:540:11:56

-If you run into difficulty

-in rural Wales...

0:11:560:11:59

-..it can be quite a challenge

-to transfer you to hospital.

0:12:000:12:04

-When Andy Lund had a biking accident

-on the mountains of Llantysilio...

0:12:040:12:08

-..the air ambulance

-came to his rescue.

0:12:090:12:11

-Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor,

-and the Helimed 61 crew...

0:12:120:12:15

-..has just transferred a casualty

-to the accident unit.

0:12:160:12:20

-All secure.

0:12:200:12:22

-But as they take off, another call

-comes through on the radio.

0:12:240:12:28

-Helimed 61 now taking off.

0:12:280:12:32

-Can we have the correct

-grid reference again, please?

0:12:320:12:36

-A mountain biker

-has been injured on Moel-y-Gamelin.

0:12:360:12:39

-Sam Williams

-is one of the crew on duty.

0:12:400:12:42

-A young boy has fallen off his bike.

0:12:430:12:45

-We think

-he went over the handlebars...

0:12:460:12:49

-..and sustained an injury.

0:12:490:12:52

-We know he's currently

-having trouble breathing.

0:12:520:12:56

-The casualty is lying

-in the Llantysilio mountains.

0:12:570:13:00

-It's unlikely

-that an ambulance will reach him.

0:13:010:13:04

-Sam speaks to the man who dialled

-999 to find out their location.

0:13:040:13:09

-We're about two minutes out now.

-We're trying to find yourselves.

0:13:110:13:15

-Are you

-by any distinguishing markings?

0:13:160:13:19

-Have you got

-any fluorescent clothing with you?

0:13:190:13:22

-I'm wearing an orange jacket

-and we've got an orange bag.

0:13:220:13:26

-Are you in the helicopter?

0:13:300:13:31

-Are you in the helicopter?

-

-Yes.

0:13:310:13:34

-I can see you now.

0:13:340:13:36

-There's a couple of people south

-of you, right on the junction.

0:13:360:13:40

-Get them to walk away from you. That

-gives us more options for landing.

0:13:410:13:45

-There's a slope on there, mate.

0:13:460:13:48

-Hiya.

0:13:550:13:57

-This is Andy.

0:13:570:13:59

-This is Andy.

-

-Hi, Andy. I'm Sam. OK?

0:13:590:14:01

-Andy Lund

-and Matt McLean were biking...

0:14:010:14:05

-..when Andy

-rode into a hole and fell.

0:14:050:14:08

-His bike landed there

-and he landed on it.

0:14:080:14:11

-So he landed up...?

0:14:110:14:13

-So he landed up...?

-

-He took the impact on his chest.

0:14:130:14:15

-He fell from his bike

-and injured his chest.

0:14:150:14:18

-It was important

-that he kept as still as possible...

0:14:190:14:23

-..to avoid further injury.

0:14:240:14:26

-Have you tried standing up?

0:14:270:14:28

-Have you tried standing up?

-

-Yes.

0:14:280:14:29

-Sam needs to remove his clothes to

-see where exactly he's been hurt.

0:14:290:14:34

-I know

-you're going to be in a lot of pain.

0:14:360:14:39

-You've got a lot of clothing

-we might be cutting off.

0:14:390:14:43

-As soon as we get you up...

0:14:430:14:46

-..we'll be able to tell...

0:14:460:14:48

-No C-spine pain.

-No shoulder pain. No hip pain.

0:14:480:14:52

-The paramedic is happy

-there is no neck injury...

0:14:530:14:56

-..but he must find out more.

0:14:570:14:59

-You remember

-everything that happened?

0:14:590:15:02

-Medication?

0:15:020:15:04

-Asthma? Diabetes?

-Normally fit and well?

0:15:050:15:08

-Aided by paramedic Tony Stevens...

0:15:080:15:12

-..Andy will be moved

-to the spinal board.

0:15:120:15:15

-If it's a back injury, any

-small movement could paralyze him.

0:15:150:15:19

-We'll sit him up,

-nice and easy, OK?

0:15:190:15:22

-We'll see how you go.

0:15:220:15:25

-This is going to sting, buddy.

0:15:250:15:27

-Nice and easy.

0:15:270:15:29

-Once you're up there,

-let it settle.

0:15:300:15:33

-Don't take deep breaths.

0:15:330:15:35

-Nice and easy, OK?

0:15:350:15:37

-Nice and easy, OK?

-

-Argh! It hurts.

0:15:370:15:39

-HE WHIMPERS

0:15:400:15:42

-Lovely stuff. There you go.

0:15:420:15:45

-Otherwise you're going

-to get a gobful of that.

0:15:450:15:48

-We're literally

-bringing your bum down, fella.

0:15:480:15:52

-Nice and easy.

0:15:530:15:55

-Aargh! Aargh!

0:15:550:15:57

-We're trying to protect your

-stomach. Relax as much as you can.

0:15:570:16:01

-Relax back. There we go.

0:16:010:16:04

-I don't know if you can,

-but if your legs can go down.

0:16:040:16:07

-Andy has been on the ground

-for more than half an hour.

0:16:080:16:11

-Like every helpless casualty

-in an exposed area...

0:16:120:16:15

-..there is the risk of hypothermia.

0:16:160:16:18

-Often, hypothermia

-sets in on the mountains.

0:16:200:16:23

-The wind affects the casualty if

-he's not wearing suitable clothing.

0:16:240:16:28

-Without a blanket or a cover, a

-person loses body heat very quickly.

0:16:280:16:33

-One, two, three, oop.

0:16:340:16:36

-Andy is now warmly wrapped up

-and in good hands.

0:16:390:16:43

-OK, let it slide.

0:16:470:16:50

-Accidents like this

-can cause internal bleeding.

0:16:500:16:54

-Sam examines the stomach to see

-if this area has started to harden.

0:16:540:16:59

-You're quite fit

-and quite toned as well.

0:17:010:17:04

-I don't know

-which one's your six pack.

0:17:040:17:07

-You have a feel with

-your other hand. Nice and easy.

0:17:070:17:11

-Is that

-your normal muscle down there?

0:17:110:17:15

-Yeah.

0:17:150:17:17

-The stomach

-is usually soft to the touch.

0:17:170:17:21

-If it starts hardening,

-it's a sign of internal bleeding.

0:17:210:17:26

-When I was examining Andy,

-I noticed his stomach was very hard.

0:17:270:17:31

-It was complicated by the fact

-that he's naturally a fit man...

0:17:320:17:37

-..with a toned, muscly stomach.

0:17:370:17:39

-We've just got

-a little bit of morphine, OK?

0:17:400:17:43

-With Andy

-in a more comfortable position...

0:17:430:17:47

-..the crew is happy to take off.

0:17:470:17:49

-His friend will have to walk back

-down the mountain with two bikes.

0:17:490:17:54

-Andy was hospitalized

-for six days at Ysbyty Maelor.

0:17:590:18:03

-He'd broken bones in his back,

-but now he's back in work.

0:18:040:18:08

-Wales's landscape

-can be truly spectacular.

0:18:110:18:14

-But sometimes it proves difficult

-to transport patients to hospital.

0:18:140:18:19

-The Wales Air Ambulance...

0:18:200:18:22

-..makes all the difference for those

-who need urgent medical attention.

0:18:220:18:26

-In 2004, Rachel Thomas

-was expecting her second child.

0:18:300:18:34

-Three months into the pregnancy,

-she started bleeding.

0:18:340:18:38

-The family

-was living in Dolgellau at the time.

0:18:380:18:42

-I went to the toilet

-and found blood.

0:18:430:18:47

-I went to see the doctor...

0:18:480:18:50

-..who said

-I had to be admitted to hospital.

0:18:500:18:54

-She was given a scan

-and it was bad news.

0:18:540:18:58

-They gave me a scan,

-but there was no baby.

0:19:010:19:05

-It had died.

0:19:050:19:07

-The following day, she was resting

-at home when she started bleeding.

0:19:100:19:15

-I went into our bedroom...

0:19:150:19:18

-..and Rachel was on the bed,

-bleeding everywhere.

0:19:190:19:23

-It was a pitiful sight.

0:19:240:19:26

-Her husband, Robert,

-phoned the doctor in panic.

0:19:300:19:34

-The doctor came to see me and

-told me I had to go to hospital...

0:19:390:19:43

-..because I was losing

-more and more blood.

0:19:440:19:47

-The paramedic told the doctor...

0:19:510:19:54

-.."We need

-an air ambulance quickly, doctor."

0:19:540:19:58

-They whisked Rachel

-straightaway to the playing field...

0:19:580:20:03

-..where the air ambulance

-was waiting.

0:20:040:20:06

-The helicopter landed

-on Dolgellau's rugby pitch.

0:20:090:20:12

-I felt happy

-once I was in the helicopter...

0:20:150:20:19

-..because I knew it'd only take

-a short while to get to hospital.

0:20:200:20:25

-They were talking to me

-and laughing with me.

0:20:250:20:30

-They were telling me stories.

0:20:310:20:33

-She was taken by helicopter

-to Ysbyty Maelor, Wrexham.

0:20:330:20:37

-Her condition

-deteriorated upon arrival.

0:20:370:20:40

-Once I'd arrived in the hospital...

0:20:450:20:47

-..I had severe pain in my belly.

0:20:470:20:50

-I felt awful.

0:20:510:20:54

-My blood pressure had dropped...

0:20:540:21:00

-..and they were trying

-to get it back up.

0:21:000:21:05

-If the blood pressure

-didn't increase...

0:21:050:21:09

-..there was a likelihood

-I would die.

0:21:090:21:11

-Rachel had

-an urgent blood transfusion...

0:21:120:21:15

-..and was transferred

-to intensive care.

0:21:150:21:19

-I thought, "This is it for Rachel.

0:21:190:21:22

-"Rachel's going to die.

-What am I going to do now?"

0:21:230:21:26

-Without the air ambulance...

0:21:260:21:29

-..Rachel would be dead.

0:21:310:21:33

-Seriously.

0:21:350:21:37

-But she pulled through.

0:21:390:21:43

-Since losing the baby, they've gone

-on to have three other children.

0:21:430:21:48

-Two weeks after leaving hospital,

-I decided I wanted another baby.

0:21:490:21:54

-Soon after, I booked a holiday

-in the Lake District.

0:21:540:21:59

-While I was there, I found out

-I was pregnant with another baby.

0:21:590:22:05

-Rachel is now pregnant again...

0:22:060:22:09

-..with her fifth child.

0:22:090:22:11

-It's possible none of

-the girls would he here today...

0:22:110:22:15

-..were it not for the Air Ambulance.

0:22:150:22:17

-..were it not for the Air Ambulance.

-

-We were thrilled when Becky came.

0:22:170:22:20

-We were over the moon.

0:22:210:22:23

-Then came Ruby and Rhian.

0:22:250:22:28

-And...

0:22:300:22:32

-Grey hair!

0:22:320:22:34

-And now there's another on the way.

0:22:340:22:37

-Can you bend your knee at all?

0:22:420:22:44

-Whilst Christmas shopping

-in Betws-y-Coed...

0:22:450:22:47

-..Mair Jones ended up with

-something that wasn't on her list.

0:22:480:22:53

-I dislocated my ankle and

-cracked the bones on both sides.

0:22:530:22:57

-I needed

-a four-hour operation in theatre.

0:22:570:23:00

-It was a nasty injury.

-I was in a wheelchair for a while.

0:23:000:23:06

-She is now recovering at home...

0:23:060:23:09

-..and would like

-to thank the crew publicly.

0:23:090:23:12

-Thank you very much, lads.

0:23:120:23:14

-I didn't get the chance

-to tell you while I was in hospital.

0:23:140:23:18

-Next time,

-the story of a farmer's son...

0:23:190:23:22

-..knocked down by a car

-on his way home from school.

0:23:220:23:26

-He was on the floor with blood

-coming out of his mouth and ear.

0:23:260:23:30

-And the crew rescues a motorcyclist

-who crashed headlong into a lorry.
