The St George's trauma team fight to save the life of a young woman after a horrific motorbike accident. Dental nurse Kerry, who's 29, arrives from Essex by emergency air ambulance on the hospital's new helipad. She lost control of her motorbike, completely severing her right leg below the knee. Kerry's grandparents were always worried about her getting a motorbike and were among the first on the scene of the accident. Due to the severity of her injuries, specialists from seven different departments have been called in to treat Kerry. But the medics need to stabilise Kerry before they can see if it's possible to re-attach her leg. 'The first priority is always life. Limb comes second,' says consultant Jai. Meanwhile, 11-year-old Luke is brought in to the department after suffering a prolonged epileptic seizure. Luke has a form of complex epilepsy that has left him with severe learning difficulties and he has up to three seizures a week. While the paediatric team stabilises Luke, his mum and dad discuss their love for their son and the challenges of living with his condition. And 19-year-old Tina comes to A&E after stepping on a sewing needle, which is stuck inside her foot. But she seems more keen to take advice from her mum in Bulgaria than from Mo, the doctor treating her.
