This episode is about living life to the full and not looking back. Forty-seven-year-old Gary was on his motorcycle when he had a head-on collision with a car. The single father of two is a code red trauma and is flown 50 miles to King's by air am... (more)bulance. He's on life support with serious head, chest and limb injuries and has been put in a medically-induced coma to reduce the risk of brain damage. A&E consultant Chris is leading a trauma team of 20 and her immediate concern is keeping Gary alive: 'You're thinking what will kill him first... you're always thinking of the chances of survival,' she says. In minors, 69-year-old charmer Steve has a fishbone stuck in his finger. It happened while he was preparing supper for a female friend. 'I was showing off my skills in cooking fish,' he says. 'I got somewhat distracted by her beauty, I just got complacent and that's when it happened.' His fear of pain and needles make it a challenge for the nurse to anaesthetise his finger and remove the bone. A year ago, 58-year-old Terry was diagnosed with lung cancer and given two weeks to live. But Terry's a fighter and won't give up easily. He's in A&E with his friend and carer Sandy, who looked after Terry's identical twin brother, Tom, during his last months and promised she would do the same for Terry.
