You Only Live Once
There is nothing run of the mill about the injuries in tonight’s episode. It is full of high drama, which fortunately comes out right for all in the end.
11-year-old Jack is rushed to A&E after being hit by a motorbike while walking to his first day at secondary school. Jack managed to push his friend out of the way, but he was thrown up in the air and banged his head, fracturing his skull. He was taken to a local hospital, but his injuries are so severe that he’s been transferred to St George’s. A CT scan reveals that Jack has a bleed on his brain caused by the fracture and doctors are also worried that he may have internal bleeding. He’s taken to intensive care.
24-year-old Jake arrives in A&E after being involved in a head-on collision with another car and he ‘bullseyed’ the windscreen. He was driving past his ex-girlfriend at the time. Jake has a seven inch injury on his head, but fortunately no sign of brain injury. He admits he’s accident prone and lives by the motto tattooed on his arm: ‘You Only Live Once’.
Meanwhile 32-year-old Saumeel has come to hospital with his brother Rishin after cutting his hand badly on a washing machine. Student doctor Uzair, who’s just started at St George’s, is looking after Saumeel, but he needs some specialist help to stitch the wound.
