We say goodbye to 24 Hours in A & E tonight but a new series is planned and we will be back towards the end of the year. In this last episode, a 43-year-old cyclist John is brought to A&E after crashing face first into a car. His injuries are so severe that he was put in an induced coma at the scene. Doctors send John for scans, suspecting that the impact may have caused serious damage to his brain and spine.
They discover that John has multiple fractures to his face and spine and a bleed on his brain. John’s wife Suki rushes to hospital to be with him, she’s worried about what his injuries will mean for John and their three children.
