"It's such a valuable resource"
Dan Barrios-O’Neill was enjoying a day in the park with his daughter in summer 2022 when he found himself needing the help of Cornwall Air Ambulance.
The crew carry out an emergency roadside anaesthetic on a stricken woman. They also battle to save a man who has suffered a cardiac arrest and a biker who has crashed at night.
A child is taken critically ill at night, and a climber suffers a fall on the moors, and it’s a race against time to help a patient in cardiac arrest.
The crew fear the worst when they attend the scene of a motorbike crash. Elsewhere, a man mysteriously collapses, baffling the medics.
The crew race to help a man crushed by a lawnmower and a rider who has been thrown from their horse. Plus, a driver needs an urgent airlift after a road accident.
A boy is airlifted after a beach fall and a motorcyclist battles to breathe. Plus, the crew face a tricky landing as they respond to a patient in cardiac arrest
The air ambulance airlifts a driver with nasty leg injuries and a woman who’s been knocked unconscious after a fall. They also help a patient who has stopped breathing.
In this episode, our paramedics treat a cyclist who may be paralysed, and are called to a farmer who has fallen off a barn roof. Later, there’s a tricky landing to help a holidaymaker
Louise and Lisa respond to a cyclist suffering from a broken femur. Tune into this episode as your crew also responds to a pedestrian hit by a car and a critically ill cardiac case.
