New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: The Underdogs…
The RTS award-winning documentary series is back with its fifteenth series following patients treated in the same 24 hour period at St George’s in south west London. The hospital has one of the busiest A&E departments in Britain. It’s a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day.
This episode – The Underdogs – includes the stories of three patients filmed over 24 hours at St George’s.
Tony, 48, was riding pillion with his father when their motorbike was involved in a crash. Both he and his father are badly injured and Tony is flown in to St George’s by emergency helicopter.
31-year-old Alison is transferred from another hospital following a horse riding accident involving being kicked with such force by the horse that her leg is broken.
Keen cyclist Harry, 12, also arrives with leg injuries, after being involved in a 10-bike pile up at his local velodrome.
Tune in tonight (Wednesday 30 May) at 9pm on Channel 4.
