-The crews

-of the three red helicopters...

0:00:190:00:22

-..can reach every inch of Wales.

0:00:220:00:25

-From the air,

-these paramedics have seen...

0:00:250:00:28

-..most of the 8,000 square miles

-that make up our country.

0:00:280:00:32

-For the past nine months,

-our cameras have joined the crews...

0:00:320:00:37

-..on their life-saving missions.

0:00:370:00:40

-Tonight, a motorcyclist in pain...

0:00:420:00:45

-..after a collision near Abergele.

0:00:450:00:48

-A male in his forties with

-serious injuries to his left leg.

0:00:480:00:53

-The Walk On volunteers prepare to

-walk 200 miles for a second time.

0:00:530:00:58

-It wasn't easy,

-it was very difficult.

0:00:580:01:01

-But it felt very special

-and inspiring.

0:01:010:01:05

-And the story of a farmer's son

-who was seriously injured...

0:01:060:01:10

-..after being knocked down by a car.

0:01:100:01:11

-..after being knocked down by a car.

-

-He was on the ground...

0:01:110:01:13

-..and there was blood

-coming out of his mouth and ear.

0:01:140:01:17

-It shocked me.

0:01:180:01:20

-The Air Ambulance helicopters...

0:01:250:01:27

-..are launched within three minutes

-of an emergency call...

0:01:280:01:32

-..from airbases in Caernarfon,

-Swansea and Welshpool.

0:01:320:01:35

-They can reach

-anywhere in Wales within 20 minutes.

0:01:350:01:39

-Are we all secure?

0:01:440:01:45

-Are we all secure?

-

-Three minutes ago...

0:01:450:01:47

-..the Caernarfon crew

-responded to a call.

0:01:470:01:50

-What's the grid?

0:01:510:01:52

-What's the grid?

-

-960743.

0:01:520:01:54

-On duty today are paramedics

-John Adams and Ian Thomas...

0:01:540:02:00

-..and pilot Paul Ramsden.

0:02:010:02:03

-They're responding

-to an accident near Abergele.

0:02:030:02:06

-En route to a motorcyclist

-involved in a collision.

0:02:090:02:12

-We're told he has long bone injuries

-and a possible pelvic fracture.

0:02:130:02:17

-About three minutes.

0:02:200:02:22

-The paramedic

-in the front assists the pilot.

0:02:220:02:25

-They're approaching

-the accident scene.

0:02:260:02:29

-Along this road near the white van.

0:02:290:02:32

-There's an access point.

-The gate's open.

0:02:320:02:35

-An ambulance crew

-is already at the scene.

0:02:420:02:46

-Are you OK? How are you getting on?

0:02:460:02:49

-This is Carl -

-fully conscious throughout.

0:02:490:02:53

-A motorcyclist was thrown from his

-bike after colliding with a lorry.

0:02:530:02:57

-He hit wagon side on.

0:02:570:02:59

-He hit wagon side on.

-

-Midshaft femur.

0:02:590:03:01

-Carl Jilge's left leg

-bore the brunt of the impact.

0:03:010:03:05

-The leg's main bone

-has been smashed.

0:03:060:03:09

-We've got traction.

0:03:090:03:12

-Is he tender

-around the pelvic region?

0:03:120:03:15

-Just mechanism. Looks to be

-an open fracture on that lower leg.

0:03:150:03:20

-There's haemorrhage.

0:03:200:03:22

-OK, I'll go and get some kit.

0:03:220:03:24

-Blood has been pouring from his leg.

0:03:250:03:28

-It appears the bone has punctured

-the skin and ripped a vein.

0:03:280:03:32

-Pain-wise,

-are we managing the pain?

0:03:370:03:40

-The 10 he's had

-hasn't really touched it.

0:03:400:03:43

-Have you got sensation in that leg?

0:03:440:03:47

-Tingly, yeah?

0:03:470:03:48

-Tingly, yeah?

-

-Can you move your toes on both feet?

0:03:480:03:50

-Yes.

0:03:510:03:52

-He was complaining of pins and

-needles and tingling in his leg.

0:03:520:03:57

-It could indicate paresthesia...

0:03:570:03:59

-..where a nerve in the back has

-been pinched, affecting one leg...

0:03:590:04:05

-..or the way the nerves

-in the leg have been pinched...

0:04:050:04:09

-..can also cause pain.

0:04:100:04:12

-The motorcyclist

-is in a critical condition.

0:04:130:04:16

-The paramedic fetches the correct

-kit to deal with the injuries.

0:04:170:04:20

-A man in his forties with

-serious injuries to his left leg.

0:04:230:04:27

-He has a closed fracture

-of the femur...

0:04:270:04:30

-..and a compound fracture

-of the tib and fib.

0:04:300:04:33

-A splint will keep him stable while

-we transfer him to the spinal board.

0:04:330:04:38

-Carl, just while you're stable...

0:04:390:04:41

-..we'll pop

-another needle in the other vein...

0:04:410:04:45

-..because

-once you straighten your leg...

0:04:450:04:48

-..you might cause some bleeding.

0:04:480:04:50

-A local doctor arrives

-and the crew works together...

0:04:530:04:57

-..to stabilize the casualty.

0:04:570:05:00

-Chest is nice and clear,

-good air entries.

0:05:000:05:03

-He's been talking to us throughout.

0:05:030:05:06

-ABCs are currently stable.

0:05:070:05:09

-He's got a compound fracture

-coming from this leg.

0:05:090:05:12

-Midshaft femur in the lower leg.

0:05:120:05:16

-He needs a thorough examination...

0:05:160:05:19

-..and to do that,

-they must tear the clothes.

0:05:190:05:23

-I'm going to cut your pants off.

0:05:230:05:25

-It's vital we see the flesh.

0:05:250:05:28

-It's important

-to remove trousers and jumpers...

0:05:280:05:32

-..so that we can examine the wounds.

0:05:320:05:34

-Perhaps someone has broken a leg

-and the bone is sticking out.

0:05:340:05:39

-But if a pair of jeans

-is concealing the wound...

0:05:390:05:43

-..blood might be

-collecting underneath it.

0:05:430:05:46

-They notice a bone has

-torn through a muscle in his leg.

0:05:470:05:52

-To stem the blood,

-the have tied a tourniquet...

0:05:520:05:56

-..but they fear there is

-internal bleeding in his hip.

0:05:560:06:00

-Can you straighten this leg for us?

0:06:000:06:03

-If someone breaks a femur, a person

-can lose half the body's blood...

0:06:030:06:08

-..into the muscle

-surrounding the bone.

0:06:080:06:12

-This accounts for many deaths.

0:06:120:06:16

-In cases like this,

-we put the casualty in traction.

0:06:160:06:20

-It pulls

-any broken bones together...

0:06:200:06:23

-..and stops the bleeding.

0:06:230:06:25

-Shall we think about

-getting him on the board?

0:06:260:06:29

-They must put tension on Carl's legs

-to stop the internal bleeding.

0:06:290:06:33

-This is difficult since the injury

-to his lower leg is so grave.

0:06:340:06:37

-You're going to feel a lot of pain.

0:06:400:06:42

-Can you straighten this leg

-a little? That's lovely.

0:06:420:06:46

-No, straight. That's it.

0:06:460:06:48

-Take a couple of deep breaths, Carl.

-It's going to hurt.

0:06:490:06:52

-I'm not going to lie to you.

0:06:520:06:54

-Traction's coming on that femur.

-It's moving.

0:06:540:06:58

-You're doing fantastic.

0:06:580:07:00

-You're doing really well, Carl.

-Nearly there, OK?.

0:07:000:07:05

-Alright? Nearly there.

0:07:050:07:07

-Despite the pain, they succeed.

0:07:080:07:11

-Now they can dress the wound.

0:07:110:07:14

-MAN GROANS

0:07:150:07:17

-Are you alright?

-You're doing really well.

0:07:170:07:20

-On three, we're going to

-roll you over, alright, Carl?

0:07:200:07:24

-One, two, three.

0:07:240:07:26

-OK?

0:07:270:07:28

-That's the worst bit done now,

-alright?

0:07:290:07:32

-Carl, how are you feeling?

0:07:320:07:34

-Tired.

0:07:340:07:36

-Carl is having trouble

-staying awake.

0:07:400:07:43

-His condition is deteriorating.

0:07:430:07:46

-The injuries to his legs

-were very dangerous...

0:07:470:07:50

-..because of the amount of blood

-a person can lose.

0:07:510:07:55

-Ready to go? Good job.

0:07:550:07:58

-Now it's a race

-to save the casualty's leg.

0:08:020:08:05

-If they prevent blood flow

-for too long, he may lose his leg.

0:08:050:08:09

-Paul, how long do you reckon?

0:08:150:08:17

-Less than five minutes.

0:08:180:08:19

-Less than five minutes.

-

-I won't rig him up then.

0:08:190:08:21

-Starting in five minutes.

0:08:210:08:23

-It's a short journey, so there's no

-need to attach the monitoring kit.

0:08:230:08:28

-The crew's priority is to transfer

-the patient as quickly as possible.

0:08:290:08:34

-You look clear now, Paul. Clear.

0:08:340:08:36

-Helimed 61 now airborne.

-Glan Clwyd in five minutes. Over.

0:08:410:08:46

-Later we'll discover

-if the crews' efforts...

0:08:460:08:51

-..were enough to save Carl's leg.

0:08:510:08:53

-Each year,

-fundraising events are organized...

0:08:540:08:58

-..to raise the 6m a year

-needed by the Wales Air Ambulance.

0:08:580:09:02

-One of the biggest events

-is Rhys Meirion's Walk On...

0:09:020:09:06

-..from Swansea to Caernarfon.

0:09:060:09:08

-The Walk On event

-embarks this Saturday.

0:09:080:09:11

-Our cameras

-have been filming preparations.

0:09:120:09:15

-Last August, a group of walkers...

0:09:180:09:21

-..embarked on a journey to

-raise money for the Air Ambulance.

0:09:220:09:25

-Tenor Rhys Meirion was the leader.

0:09:250:09:28

-Yay! Bit of encouragement, boys.

0:09:280:09:32

-There are

-hundreds of stories about people...

0:09:320:09:35

-..who wouldn't be here today

-if it weren't for the Air Ambulance.

0:09:350:09:40

-They complete 2,000 missions a year.

0:09:400:09:43

-The group

-walked from Swansea to Welshpool...

0:09:440:09:47

-..and then to Caernarfon,

-covering 200 miles in eight days.

0:09:470:09:51

-They walked

-a distance of 26 miles a day...

0:09:550:09:58

-..and had a warm reception

-right across Wales.

0:09:580:10:02

-Good morning. How are you?

0:10:020:10:04

-Good to see you.

0:10:040:10:06

-Thank you very much. Thank you.

0:10:070:10:11

-But the walk put a lot of strain

-on the walkers' bodies.

0:10:110:10:15

-Rhys Meirion had to give up on the

-7th day, following medical advice.

0:10:160:10:21

-The walkers reached

-their journey's end in Caernarfon...

0:10:240:10:28

-..to a warm reception

-at the airbase.

0:10:290:10:32

-Each one of us

-has blisters and much more...

0:10:320:10:35

-..but we've

-pulled ourselves together...

0:10:350:10:39

-..and completed a memorable journey.

0:10:390:10:41

-None of us could've done this alone.

-It's been a joint effort.

0:10:420:10:46

-If someone was feeling down,

-the others lifted their spirits.

0:10:470:10:51

-This is something the eight of us

-have achieved together.

0:10:510:10:55

-The group raised 92,000

-for the charity last year.

0:10:560:11:00

-Seven months later and a few of them

-are back to do the same thing again.

0:11:110:11:16

-Some people might think we're mad...

0:11:190:11:22

-..because it was very difficult

-the first time around...

0:11:220:11:26

-..but it felt special

-and inspiring...

0:11:260:11:29

-..being part of it.

0:11:300:11:33

-This time,

-we start our journey in Llanelli...

0:11:330:11:36

-..over to Carmarthen, Lampeter,

-Aberaeron, Aberystwyth...

0:11:360:11:41

-..up to Machynlleth, Harlech,

-Porthmadog, ending in Caernarfon.

0:11:420:11:46

-The group meets at the WRU's

-training centre in Colwyn Bay...

0:11:460:11:51

-..to receive advice

-from the experts.

0:11:520:11:55

-Again,

-try and keep your spine in line.

0:11:550:11:58

-Rhys Meirion is determined to

-train correctly this time around...

0:11:580:12:04

-..following leg problems last year.

0:12:040:12:07

-Being unable to finish the walk

-broke my heart last year...

0:12:070:12:12

-..because

-so much preparation went into it.

0:12:120:12:15

-Perhaps that's the reason

-why I'm so keen to do it again.

0:12:150:12:19

-I'm determined

-to finish it this year...

0:12:190:12:22

-..even if that means

-crawling over the finishing line.

0:12:220:12:27

-The group is given

-training sessions in the gym...

0:12:270:12:31

-..dietary advice, as well as advice

-on how to deal with injuries.

0:12:320:12:36

-One of the walkers is

-Urdd Eisteddfod Director Aled Sion.

0:12:370:12:41

-It's increasing the weight,

-so you can carry...

0:12:420:12:45

-I completed one leg from Dolgellau

-to Penrhyndeudraeth last year.

0:12:450:12:50

-I wanted to walk

-the full distance this year.

0:12:500:12:53

-I work for the Urdd, and Mr Urdd

-is also joining us on the walk...

0:12:530:12:58

-..so hopefully we'll raise

-lots of money for the Air Ambulance.

0:12:580:13:02

-Like many of the fundraisers...

0:13:030:13:06

-..the service has come to

-the assistance of Aled's family.

0:13:060:13:10

-A few years ago my father-in-law was

-injured whilst chopping down trees.

0:13:100:13:15

-They had to call

-the air ambulance...

0:13:150:13:18

-..and I was grateful

-he was airlifted to hospital.

0:13:180:13:22

-The least I can do is

-join in this walk for the cause.

0:13:220:13:25

-After a challenging fitness test...

0:13:260:13:29

-..the team is given

-a special training programme...

0:13:300:13:33

-..to prepare them for the walk.

0:13:330:13:36

-I'm a little nervous but we're miles

-ahead of where we were last year...

0:13:360:13:40

-..in terms of training,

-which is very encouraging.

0:13:410:13:44

-We're all going to be disciplined

-to reach a level of fitness...

0:13:450:13:50

-..that will help us

-fulfil the task.

0:13:510:13:53

-This Saturday,

-a group of 15 walkers...

0:13:560:13:59

-..will set out from Swansea.

0:13:590:14:01

-I'm hopeless.

0:14:030:14:05

-Crikey, you did better than me!

0:14:050:14:08

-After the break, a farmer's son

-who sustained serious injuries...

0:14:090:14:14

-..after being knocked down by a car.

0:14:140:14:16

-..after being knocked down by a car.

-

-Blood was pouring from his head.

0:14:160:14:19

-He was drifting

-in and out of consciousness.

0:14:190:14:22

-And we visit the motorcyclist

-10 months on from this accident.

0:14:460:14:50

-I remember

-getting off the bus with my sister.

0:15:210:15:25

-I looked to the right, then the left

-and I saw and heard nothing.

0:15:250:15:30

-and I ran to the other side.

-the air and hit the windscreen.

0:15:500:15:55

-I saw him on the ground...

0:15:550:15:57

-..and blood

-was pouring from his mouth and ear.

0:15:570:16:01

-It shocked me.

0:16:010:16:04

-Ryan was unconscious,

-He was drifting

-in and out of consciousness.

0:16:140:16:17

-didn't know what was happening.

0:16:170:16:22

-He was talking gobbledegook.

0:16:220:16:24

-They didn't know he had

-internal bleeding in his head...

0:16:240:16:28

-..increasing

-the pressure on his brain.

0:16:290:16:31

-Ryan was on the floor

-with blood pouring out of his head.

0:16:320:16:36

-All kinds of things

-were going through my mind...

0:16:370:16:40

-..seeing him lying there.

0:16:410:16:43

-PHONE RINGS

0:16:480:16:50

-PHONE RINGS

-

-Swansea Airbase.

0:16:500:16:52

-Paramedic Chris Connor

-was on duty in Swansea...

0:16:540:16:57

-..when the call came in.

0:16:580:17:00

-No-one likes seeing

-sick and injured children...

0:17:000:17:04

-..so it does heighten your awareness

-of what you're going to.

0:17:040:17:09

-Within 15 minutes,

-the helicopter was above Ffostrasol.

0:17:110:17:15

-The helicopter landed

-on the village's football ground.

0:17:230:17:27

-In the meantime,

-others had stopped to lend a hand.

0:17:270:17:31

-Fair play,

-a lot of people had gathered.

0:17:350:17:38

-In a flash,

-the air ambulance arrived.

0:17:380:17:40

-They were there

-before I'd turned around.

0:17:410:17:43

-As Ryan hit the car's windscreen,

-it shattered.

0:17:440:17:48

-The term we use in a pre-hospital

-setting is bull's-eye.

0:17:520:17:56

-It means the head or shoulders

-has hit the windscreen...

0:17:560:18:00

-..with such force, it leaves

-a circular cobweb pattern.

0:18:000:18:04

-It resembles a dartboard.

0:18:040:18:06

-Once Ryan

-had regained consciousness...

0:18:070:18:09

-..he was impatient

-with the paramedics.

0:18:100:18:12

-It was a sign

-he'd sustained brain injury.

0:18:130:18:15

-Ready, steady, lift.

0:18:160:18:18

-The air ambulance crew

-came over after landing...

0:18:190:18:24

-..and moved him on to a stretcher

-into the helicopter.

0:18:240:18:30

-He needed specialist treatment

-at a neurology unit...

0:18:300:18:34

-..to reduce

-the pressure on his brain.

0:18:350:18:37

-On assessing the patient,

-we could see...

0:18:380:18:40

-..that he was bleeding from the ear.

0:18:410:18:43

-That suggests

-significant head injury.

0:18:430:18:46

-Morriston Hospital, Swansea...

0:18:460:18:49

-..was the nearest...

0:18:490:18:51

-..but they had

-no unit to deal with head injuries.

0:18:510:18:55

-Which did mean overflying

-the hospital in Swansea...

0:18:550:18:59

-..and prolonging the journey

-for an extra 12 minutes.

0:18:590:19:03

-But for

-the patient's best interests...

0:19:030:19:06

-..he had to be

-in the most appropriate place.

0:19:060:19:09

-They reached Cardiff

-within half an hour.

0:19:090:19:12

-When the helicopter

-landed at Heath hospital...

0:19:120:19:16

-..Ryan was rushed in for a CT scan.

0:19:160:19:19

-He had a fractured skull

-and bleeding on the brain.

0:19:210:19:24

-He'd broken his collarbone,

-and two or three ribs.

0:19:250:19:30

-The bone under his eye collapsed.

0:19:310:19:35

-They had to operate on that

-straightaway...

0:19:360:19:39

-..because they feared

-he might lose his sight.

0:19:390:19:43

-He needed surgery

-to repair his eye socket.

0:19:460:19:50

-He was hospitalized

-for a fortnight.

0:19:500:19:53

-He had bruises all around here.

0:19:560:19:58

-It was scary

-to see him looking like that.

0:19:580:20:02

-A year on from the accident and Ryan

-has made a remarkable recovery.

0:20:050:20:09

-He can enjoy sport once again.

0:20:100:20:12

-He plays rugby now...

0:20:120:20:15

-..and his hand is much better.

0:20:150:20:18

-His eye is fine.

-He's right as rain now.

0:20:180:20:21

-After the accident...

0:20:220:20:24

-..the family

-held an auction in Ffostrasol...

0:20:240:20:27

-..to raise money

-for the Air Ambulance.

0:20:280:20:30

-They raised more than 7,000.

0:20:310:20:33

-I'm very grateful to them.

0:20:340:20:36

-It's incredible

-to think it's charity based.

0:20:360:20:42

-I didn't know that beforehand.

0:20:420:20:44

-He's fine now, he's improved a lot,

-thanks to the Air Ambulance.

0:20:510:20:55

-Without them,

-perhaps he wouldn't be here.

0:20:550:20:59

-I'd like to thank the Air Ambulance

-boys for saving my life.

0:20:590:21:04

-In Part 1, we saw the Caernarfon

-crew assist Carl Jilge...

0:21:070:21:11

-..following a motorbike accident.

0:21:110:21:14

-After spending

-a month in hospital...

0:21:140:21:17

-..he's now home and our cameras

-went to check on his recovery.

0:21:170:21:21

-The North Wales crew

-was called to a grave accident...

0:21:220:21:26

-..on a road near Abergele.

0:21:260:21:29

-This is going to hurt.

0:21:290:21:32

-One of Carl's bones

-had torn through the flesh...

0:21:320:21:35

-..in his leg.

0:21:360:21:38

-When medics saw his leg, they feared

-they wouldn't be able to save it.

0:21:380:21:43

-I don't remember anything

-of the accident...

0:21:430:21:47

-..but I remember

-going into the helicopter.

0:21:470:21:50

-Carl had broken his hip and

-shattered a bone in his lower leg.

0:21:510:21:55

-He spent three weeks in hospital.

0:21:580:22:00

-Following surgery,

-he's now at home in St Asaph.

0:22:010:22:05

-I'm very relieved...

0:22:060:22:08

-..that my leg is in working order.

0:22:080:22:12

-I didn't want to lose my leg.

0:22:120:22:14

-He's indebted to everyone

-who helped him on that fateful day.

0:22:170:22:21

-I'd like to thank the helicopter

-crew and the people at the scene.

0:22:230:22:28

-100 feet.

0:22:380:22:41

-Can you hear me?
