Chris Solomons, an emergency medical dispatcher at Yorkshire Air Ambulance HQ, arrived at work around 7am. He had begun feeling chest pains & unwell in general while driving, & barely managed to arrive. He called over a fellow paramedic, who, with another colleague, assessed his status. It quickly became apparent that he was suffering from a massive heart attack. A few minutes later, Chris went into cardiac arrest. What follows is a display of true heroism by all involved in providing Chris with emergency medical care as soon as possible.

The whole episode was filmed by a BBC cameraman. This cameraman was present to film the team as part of a series called Helicopter Heroes. And heroes he got.

A meteorite shot through the Russian sky & exploded,  sending a molten meteor shower to the ground & people into panic. around 950 were reported injured. There was damage, too. Windows exploded, doors flew off buildings & structures shook.

Imagine having to treat patients in this environment of panic.
