A powerful cautionary episode about events that shock people into reflecting on the way they live their lives. Thirty-nine-year-old Neil was driving a friend's sports car when he was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle. After remaining trapped in the wreckage for over an hour, he's flown by HEMS, the helicopter emergency medics, to King's A&E. The main concern is potential paralysis from injury to his neck and back. Meanwhile in Minors, two patients have come in as the result of daredevil antics. Thomassine, who's 21, is a fledgling skateboarder who was encouraged by her best friend Andre to do a risky stunt in the park after dark and she's badly hurt her ankle. Another patient, 34-year-old Matias, tried to get onto a train after the doors had closed. With his hands trapped, he was dragged along the platform until he managed to pull himself free.
