-Emergencies in remote areas...

0:00:200:00:22

-..are difficult to reach

-when medical assistance is required.

0:00:220:00:26

-But the Wales Air Ambulance is able

-to reach any location in Wales...

0:00:270:00:31

-..within 20 minutes.

0:00:310:00:33

-Over the past nine months...

0:00:330:00:35

-..our cameras have been

-on board the helicopters...

0:00:350:00:39

-..as they respond to emergencies.

0:00:390:00:42

-Tonight, the story

-of a Carmarthenshire farmer...

0:00:420:00:45

-..who sustained

-horrific injuries in the snow.

0:00:450:00:49

-I knew he'd been

-seriously injured...

0:00:490:00:52

-..and I wasn't sure

-he'd reach Morriston in time.

0:00:520:00:55

-We meet the Ambulance Service's

-call centre crew.

0:00:560:01:00

-It's fantastic

-knowing that you've helped somebody.

0:01:000:01:04

-And a golfer in trouble

-at the Llanfairfechan course.

0:01:080:01:11

-Yes, I'm alright.

0:01:120:01:14

-I'm embarrassed more than anything.

0:01:140:01:16

-It's Wednesday afternoon

-and Swansea's Helimed crew...

0:01:220:01:26

-..is called to an accident

-on the A40 dual carriageway.

0:01:260:01:30

-He's come off the main bypass...

0:01:310:01:34

-..and gone down a ditch.

0:01:340:01:36

-On duty is pilot Grant Elgar...

0:01:370:01:39

-..and paramedics

-Tom Archer and Chris Connor.

0:01:390:01:42

-Six minutes, yeah?

0:01:420:01:44

-Six minutes, yeah?

-

-Five minutes now.

0:01:440:01:46

-Noticing

-a traffic tailback down below...

0:01:460:01:50

-..the scene of the accident

-comes into view.

0:01:500:01:53

-OK, Grant?

0:01:530:01:55

-Chris opens the door...

0:01:560:01:58

-..as Grant prepares to land.

0:01:590:02:01

-Hello, mate.

0:02:010:02:03

-The Carmarthen ambulance crew

-is already there...

0:02:060:02:10

-..attending to

-the casualty in the ditch.

0:02:100:02:13

-We've just arrived and a man

-has been knocked off his bike.

0:02:130:02:17

-It appears that the lorry

-collided with the man.

0:02:170:02:20

-The paramedics are here...

0:02:210:02:23

-..and hopefully

-we can get him to the hospital.

0:02:230:02:26

-The policeman is unaware that the

-casualty is one of his colleagues.

0:02:270:02:32

-He's in a bad way.

0:02:320:02:34

-What's your name, buddy?

0:02:360:02:39

-Anthony Mattick was cycling home

-from police headquarters...

0:02:390:02:43

-..to the seaside town of

-Saundersfoot when he was struck.

0:02:440:02:48

-Keep your head

-nice and still for us.

0:02:500:02:52

-The bike is completely mangled.

0:02:530:02:55

-Put the board there.

0:02:560:02:58

-Anthony is in considerable pain.

0:03:000:03:02

-The crew spots a wound on his leg

-which needs urgent attention.

0:03:030:03:07

-That's as big a dressing

-as you've got...

0:03:070:03:11

-..for the hip.

0:03:120:03:14

-It's only to keep it clean.

0:03:140:03:16

-Anthony is difficult to reach.

0:03:170:03:20

-It's impossible to slide

-the spinal board underneath him...

0:03:200:03:24

-..so they will try to carefully

-lift him onto the board...

0:03:250:03:29

-..without causing further injury.

0:03:290:03:32

-Shuffle you down so your bum's on

-our stretcher and we'll pivot you.

0:03:320:03:36

-Two, three.

0:03:370:03:38

-Stay there, stay there.

-Stay there, stay there.

0:03:380:03:42

-The crew suspects Anthony

-has a fractured pelvis...

0:03:480:03:52

-..which may cause internal bleeding.

0:03:520:03:54

-The pelvis must be held in place

-with a splint before moving him.

0:03:550:03:59

-Anthony? Ready, steady, slide.

0:04:030:04:06

-I'm in a bit of pain, that's all.

0:04:110:04:13

-I'm in a bit of pain, that's all.

-

-Tell us where.

0:04:130:04:14

-Where's the pain, Anthony?

0:04:150:04:17

-Back and chest.

0:04:180:04:20

-Don't push.

0:04:200:04:22

-It's possible

-Anthony has spinal injuries...

0:04:230:04:27

-..so he must be strapped

-to the spinal board...

0:04:280:04:31

-..with blocks supporting his head.

0:04:310:04:33

-We'll stop the traffic.

0:04:340:04:36

-As Tom and the rest of the crew

-carry Anthony from the ditch...

0:04:370:04:41

-..Chris calls ahead

-to Cardiff's Heath Hospital.

0:04:420:04:45

-His helmet

-is in quite a bad state...

0:04:490:04:52

-..so that's why

-we'll bring him up to yourselves.

0:04:530:04:56

-It's feared he may have a punctured

-lung and is bleeding into his lungs.

0:04:570:05:01

-He's in a very serious way.

0:05:020:05:04

-With a journey of 20 minutes

-to the hospital in Cardiff...

0:05:040:05:08

-..the crew must leave at once.

0:05:080:05:10

-..the crew must leave at once.

-

-We're heading to the Heath, Cardiff.

0:05:100:05:14

-"57, Roger 181. Over."

0:05:150:05:17

-His condition is deteriorating.

0:05:180:05:21

-Tom and Chris

-decide to give him morphine.

0:05:210:05:25

-Five milligrams.

0:05:260:05:29

-He's wincing now, isn't he?

0:05:290:05:31

-Yes.

0:05:310:05:33

-We'll give you a stronger painkiller

-to ease the pain.

0:05:360:05:39

-Anthony is transferred to

-the emergency unit to be assessed.

0:05:440:05:49

-We will return later to check

-the full extent of his injuries.

0:05:490:05:53

-When the red phone rings,

-the crew has to respond quickly.

0:06:000:06:04

-The Ambulance Service's

-control centres...

0:06:040:06:07

-..at Llanfairfechan, Carmarthen and

-Cwmbran receive the initial call.

0:06:070:06:12

-They must then decide

-if a helicopter is required.

0:06:120:06:16

-The Ambulance Service's call centre

-in Llanfairfechan...

0:06:160:06:19

-..is one of three in Wales, managing

-more than 1,000 emergency workers.

0:06:200:06:26

-The service receives

-700 calls every day.

0:06:260:06:29

-Is he fully conscious? Which part

-of his body has he injured?

0:06:300:06:34

-Kayleigh Granton is one of the crew

-answering calls at Llanfairfechan.

0:06:360:06:42

-They deal with all kinds of calls

-seven days a week.

0:06:420:06:45

-When we hear the bleep, we don't

-know what's going to happen...

0:06:450:06:49

-..or what kind of call it will be.

0:06:500:06:52

-But we're trained

-to deal with any situation.

0:06:520:06:55

-If they're shouting or upset, you

-have to know how to calm them down.

0:06:550:07:00

-We try to comfort them and reassure

-them that help is on the way.

0:07:000:07:05

-We advise them what to do next.

0:07:060:07:08

-The service provides community first

-responders, fast-response units...

0:07:080:07:14

-..regular ambulances

-and air ambulances.

0:07:140:07:17

-Emma Angel decides which of those

-is most suitable for the job.

0:07:170:07:22

-We send the nearest and most

-suitable assistance to them.

0:07:220:07:27

-Sometimes we send

-the first responders...

0:07:270:07:30

-..which arrive before the ambulance.

0:07:300:07:33

-If the ambulance is far away,

-we send the first responders...

0:07:330:07:37

-..so that they receive help at once.

0:07:380:07:40

-Keep an eye on him. If he starts

-vomiting, turn him on his side.

0:07:410:07:45

-The crew is on its way. If he

-deteriorates, phone us back asap.

0:07:450:07:50

-Kayleigh has a script to follow

-when issuing medical advice.

0:07:500:07:55

-She must keep the caller calm

-in order to help the casualty.

0:07:550:08:00

-You hope they've understood

-what you've told them to do.

0:08:000:08:04

-You have to speak to them

-in the right tone...

0:08:040:08:07

-..to calm them down

-and talk them through it.

0:08:070:08:10

-Our instruction keeps the casualty

-alive until the ambulance arrives.

0:08:110:08:16

-Hello, Ambulance.

0:08:160:08:18

-But some callers

-waste the staff's time...

0:08:190:08:22

-..with trivial calls.

0:08:230:08:26

-People phone us, wanting us to send

-an ambulance to make them a cuppa.

0:08:280:08:33

-It's ridiculous.

0:08:330:08:36

-But they must think

-they need help to do some things.

0:08:360:08:40

-Most of the staff live locally

-and are sometimes shocked...

0:08:420:08:46

-..by the caller at the other end.

0:08:460:08:49

-It was my mother,

-phoning for an ambulance for Nain.

0:08:490:08:53

-I never want to receive

-a call from family again.

0:08:530:08:56

-How did you respond to that?

0:08:560:08:58

-How did you respond to that?

-

-I cried.

0:08:580:09:00

-I was completely unprofessional.

0:09:000:09:02

-I was told I could go home

-or go to the hospital...

0:09:020:09:06

-..but I decided to stay

-and continue working, I was fine.

0:09:060:09:09

-Nain was OK, but I took time out

-and spoke to the shift manager...

0:09:100:09:15

-..and returned to work.

0:09:150:09:18

-Is he conscious?

0:09:180:09:20

-Is he breathing?

0:09:200:09:22

-Help is on its way.

-Stay on the line for assistance.

0:09:240:09:27

-The women say

-it can be an emotional job...

0:09:280:09:31

-..but they'd never

-want to swap with anyone.

0:09:310:09:34

-You help people who are in labour

-and sometimes the baby is born...

0:09:370:09:41

-..while you're on the phone -

-it's a fantastic feeling.

0:09:410:09:45

-I love helping people.

0:09:460:09:48

-This is one way of helping people...

0:09:480:09:50

-..without coming

-face to face with them.

0:09:510:09:54

-I love sending crews out

-to help other people.

0:09:540:09:59

-That's what's

-kept me going for 17 years.

0:09:590:10:02

-That's the main reason.

0:10:020:10:04

-In Part 2, the 13th hole

-proves unlucky for one golfer.

0:10:070:10:12

-And the life of a Carmarthen farmer

-is at stake...

0:10:150:10:18

-..after an accident in the snow.

0:10:180:10:20

-He shouted, "Emyr's fallen

-and the tractor's gone over him."

-Sunday, and the Helimed 61 crew

-is called to Llanfairfechan.

0:10:390:10:44

-Airborne at 10.18. Running time

-approximately eight minutes. Over.

0:10:440:10:49

-On duty today

-are pilot Bob Kendal...

0:10:500:10:53

-..and paramedics

-Tony Stevens and Ian Thomas.

0:10:530:10:56

-We've been called to

-the Llanfairfechan golf course.

0:10:570:11:00

-A man has injured his knee.

-A response vehicle is at the scene.

0:11:010:11:05

-We'll find out more when we land.

0:11:050:11:08

-The golf course is on high ground

-and is inaccessible by ambulance.

0:11:120:11:17

-It's difficult for the air ambulance

-to find a flat landing surface.

0:11:170:11:22

-The only place we've got

-is this green.

0:11:250:11:27

-I can possibly land on the green.

0:11:280:11:30

-The pilot must avoid electricity

-wires crossing the golf course.

0:11:300:11:36

-Wires on the left.

0:11:390:11:41

-They should be by the road.

0:11:410:11:43

-Coming into contact with the wires

-may damage the helicopter...

0:11:430:11:48

-..causing it

-to plummet to the ground.

0:11:480:11:51

-Trees can be just as dangerous.

0:11:510:11:54

-Your tail is clear of the trees.

0:11:540:11:57

-The pilot lands safely on the green.

0:11:590:12:02

-A four-wheel-drive response unit

-is at the scene...

0:12:020:12:06

-..but won't be able to

-transport the patient to hospital.

0:12:060:12:10

-Paramedic Dylan Lewis

-is there to meet the crew.

0:12:110:12:14

-Are you alright?

0:12:150:12:16

-Vivian Williams

-slid down these steps.

0:12:170:12:20

-He's dislocated his knee

-and must keep it stable...

0:12:200:12:24

-..to avoid any further injury.

0:12:240:12:27

-He's not in pain

-if he tries to move it.

0:12:290:12:32

-We'll put your knee in a splint

-and carry you to the chopper. Happy?

0:12:320:12:37

-Paramedics must check

-the patient's medical history...

0:12:390:12:43

-..in order to know

-which medication to administer.

0:12:430:12:47

-Statins and Aspirin.

-History of cholesterol.

0:12:480:12:51

-He suffers from gout too.

0:12:510:12:54

-Good living?

0:12:540:12:56

-Good living?

-

-Yes, that's what it's down to!

0:12:560:12:58

-Viv is in considerable pain

-and needs Entonox, or gas and air.

0:13:010:13:05

-Take that, Viv. Nice deep breaths.

0:13:100:13:13

-Deeper than that.

0:13:130:13:15

-There we go.

0:13:160:13:17

-We need to lift your leg

-to remove the coat.

0:13:180:13:20

-We'll slide this underneath you

-to give you more support.

0:13:210:13:26

-Carry on taking it

-or the effect will wear off.

0:13:260:13:29

-Viv was playing in a competition

-when he slid at the 13th hole.

0:13:310:13:35

-Unlucky indeed for some.

0:13:350:13:37

-He was playing here

-and slid down the steps.

0:13:380:13:42

-He's injured his knee.

0:13:420:13:44

-Once Tony brings the stretcher...

0:13:450:13:48

-..they prep Viv

-for his journey to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:13:480:13:52

-There we go. Great.

0:13:520:13:54

-Slide this leg over to Tony

-and I'll support the injured one.

0:13:550:13:59

-Alright, Viv?

0:14:000:14:01

-Dylan will help you.

0:14:010:14:03

-Dylan will help you.

-

-Bring that leg over first.

0:14:030:14:05

-Once transferred, he's ready to go.

0:14:100:14:12

-OK? Nice and comfy? Very good.

0:14:150:14:17

-See you, lads.

0:14:220:14:24

-See you, lads.

-

-Out in style!

0:14:240:14:26

-Viv is in good spirits...

0:14:280:14:31

-..but he knows

-he's in for some leg pulling later.

0:14:310:14:35

-How do you feel, Viv?

0:14:370:14:39

-Alright, I'm just...

0:14:390:14:42

-..embarrassed more than anything.

0:14:420:14:44

-As the others

-finish their round of golf...

0:14:480:14:51

-..one player

-is on his way to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:14:510:14:54

-OK, Viv?

0:14:570:14:59

-He dislocated his knee

-while walking down some steps.

0:15:010:15:04

-He's going to Bangor for an X-ray

-and hopefully it will all be OK.

0:15:050:15:09

-Viv underwent surgery

-to reset his knee at Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:15:140:15:18

-He is since out of plaster

-but continues to use crutches.

0:15:190:15:23

-He's given up golf

-for the time being.

0:15:240:15:26

-It's difficult for land crews

-to reach casualties in poor weather.

0:15:280:15:33

-During the blizzards of 2010, Emyr

-Davies required urgent assistance...

0:15:330:15:38

-..at his Carmarthenshire farm.

0:15:380:15:40

-Emyr's family's farm is in Hermon.

0:15:460:15:48

-In December 2010,

-his life was turned upside down.

0:15:490:15:52

-It was snowing heavily,

-affecting his daily duties.

0:15:590:16:03

-I was busy working

-on the farmyard...

0:16:060:16:08

-..when the farmhand

-came on the tractor.

0:16:080:16:11

-It was slippery under foot,

-causing Emyr to fall.

0:16:110:16:16

-I fell into the tractor's path.

0:16:160:16:20

-The farmhand didn't notice him

-on the floor and drove over him.

0:16:220:16:27

-I remember hearing my foot crack

-as the tractor went over it.

0:16:290:16:33

-The pain turned into numbness...

0:16:370:16:39

-..and my body went numb -

-I couldn't feel a thing.

0:16:390:16:42

-I thought it was over for me.

0:16:430:16:45

-I really did.

0:16:450:16:48

-After hearing the screams...

0:16:480:16:51

-..the farmhand jumped down from the

-tractor and fetched Emyr's father.

0:16:510:16:56

-The lad run up the yard,

-shouting...

0:16:560:16:59

-.."Emyr's fallen

-and the tractor's gone over him."

0:16:590:17:03

-I rushed down at once.

-It was heartbreaking.

0:17:030:17:06

-There he was, lying on his back.

0:17:070:17:09

-He said,

-"Don't leave me, don't leave me."

0:17:090:17:12

-"I'm in so much pain.

-Don't leave me."

0:17:120:17:15

-Emyr was fighting for his life.

0:17:160:17:18

-I knew my father was there.

-He was holding my arm.

0:17:210:17:25

-I found the strength to breathe.

-If he let go, I'd stop breathing.

0:17:250:17:29

-"Why doesn't somebody help me?"

-he said?

0:17:350:17:38

-"Why doesn't Mami come?"

0:17:380:17:40

-His mother was buried 12 years ago.

0:17:410:17:44

-It was a horrific experience.

0:17:440:17:46

-He required an ambulance urgently.

0:17:470:17:50

-With blizzards

-and slippery conditions...

0:17:500:17:53

-..the Swansea Air Ambulance

-was alerted.

0:17:540:17:57

-Anuerin Heath was on duty.

0:17:570:17:59

-I knew the ambulance was having

-problems steering up the hill...

0:18:020:18:06

-..because of

-the snow and ice on the road.

0:18:070:18:09

-As the helicopter landed, an

-ambulance arrived at the same time.

0:18:130:18:17

-It was evident to the crews that

-Emyr had sustained serious injuries.

0:18:170:18:22

-He was in and out of consciousness.

0:18:230:18:27

-One minute he was talking to us,

-the next minute he was silent.

0:18:270:18:31

-There was no blood visible.

-Emyr's injuries were internal.

0:18:330:18:38

-Farmers wear

-lots of clothing in winter.

0:18:390:18:42

-We had to cut through the layers

-to get to his body...

0:18:430:18:46

-..to establish his injuries.

0:18:470:18:49

-It was probable that Emyr

-had sustained spinal injuries.

0:18:490:18:53

-He was transferred to a spinal board

-to keep his spine and neck straight.

0:18:540:18:59

-I asked the family

-how much the tractor weighed.

0:19:000:19:03

-They said

-it was close to seven tonnes...

0:19:040:19:06

-..which is a lot of weight

-on a small body.

0:19:070:19:09

-He required

-urgent medical attention.

0:19:100:19:12

-Since he was bleeding internally...

0:19:130:19:15

-..the helicopter had to fly low.

0:19:150:19:18

-The higher you ascend, the less

-atmospheric pressure there is...

0:19:200:19:24

-..which means the casualty

-is going to lose more blood.

0:19:240:19:27

-We had to fly low to keep him alive.

0:19:280:19:30

-The best place to treat chest injury

-is the trauma unit in Cardiff...

0:19:300:19:35

-..but since he was deteriorating,

-the crew opted for Morriston...

0:19:350:19:40

-..for urgency.

0:19:400:19:42

-I knew he'd been seriously injured.

0:19:420:19:45

-I wasn't sure...

0:19:450:19:47

-..that he

-would reach Morriston in time.

0:19:490:19:52

-The tractor had damaged his liver...

0:19:540:19:57

-..and crushed bones

-in his spine and feet.

0:19:570:20:00

-He spent

-five weeks recovering in hospital.

0:20:000:20:03

-It's almost two years

-since the accident...

0:20:110:20:13

-..and Emyr has yet to meet the man

-who rescued him until today.

0:20:140:20:18

-Hello, how are you?

0:20:180:20:20

-He still has pains in his feet

-and his sight has deteriorated.

0:20:220:20:26

-He still has nightmares

-about that fateful winter's day.

0:20:260:20:30

-Lovely to see you. Thank you

-from the bottom of my heart.

0:20:300:20:34

-I have flashbacks.

0:20:340:20:36

-They might only last a second.

-They come and go.

0:20:360:20:41

-But they're there.

0:20:410:20:43

-It's terrifying.

0:20:450:20:47

-For Aneurin, meeting a casualty

-who's pulled through...

0:20:480:20:52

-..makes his job worthwhile.

0:20:520:20:54

-He suffered terrible injuries

-and it's nice to see he survived...

0:20:540:20:59

-..and is recovering.

0:20:590:21:02

-Not many people

-live to tell the tale.

0:21:020:21:05

-Despite what you've done,

-you still lose them.

0:21:050:21:08

-That's my job.

-That's what I do from day to day.

0:21:080:21:11

-That's why the helicopter is there

-for people like him.

0:21:110:21:16

-The family is grateful

-for the ambulance crews...

0:21:160:21:20

-..and the speed

-of the Air Ambulance.

0:21:200:21:23

-Things were looking bleak that day.

0:21:230:21:26

-I'm incredibly grateful to them.

0:21:260:21:29

-June, and policeman Anthony Mattick

-is in pain...

0:21:350:21:39

-..after being knocked off his bike

-on his way home.

0:21:390:21:43

-The memories are still raw

-for wife, Delyth.

0:21:430:21:46

-I received a call on my mobile...

0:21:460:21:48

-..telling me that Anthony'd

-been knocked off his bike.

0:21:490:21:53

-It was sudden shock,

-that phone call you dread.

0:21:530:21:56

-He was bleeding internally with

-injuries to his bladder and liver.

0:21:570:22:01

-He had also broken bones

-in his shoulder, pelvis and leg.

0:22:010:22:05

-His life was at stake.

0:22:050:22:07

-The police went to pick up

-my son Jonathan from Tenby.

0:22:070:22:13

-They were constantly updating me.

0:22:130:22:16

-The police traffic car turned up...

0:22:170:22:21

-..and took

-myself and the children to Cardiff.

0:22:210:22:25

-Anthony is now back at home

-with his family in Saundersfoot...

0:22:290:22:34

-..and is slowly recovering.

0:22:340:22:36

-I have four weeks left with the cast

-on before I can actually stand up.

0:22:360:22:41

-But I'm grateful, nevertheless...

0:22:420:22:44

-..for being flown to Cardiff

-to receive that expert treatment.

0:22:440:22:49

-I'm aware that no doubt

-that's what helped save my life.

0:22:500:22:54

-Anthony had been training for a walk

-in aid of the Wales Air Ambulance...

0:22:540:22:59

-..not knowing he would

-require the service himself.

0:23:000:23:03

-I didn't think

-I could endure so much pain.

0:23:040:23:07

-But as I sit here, I am recovering,

-I'm pleased with that.

0:23:070:23:11

-Hopefully

-I'll come back to good health.

0:23:110:23:14

-Without the assistance

-of the emergency services...

0:23:140:23:17

-..things might not have been

-so encouraging.

0:23:180:23:21

-I'm grateful for the service.

0:23:210:23:23

-It helped save Anthony's life.
