BBC One documentary series Ambulance had viewers in bits with scenes of a motorcyclist who died after being thrown 30 feet in a road accident.

In last night’s episode (July 4), North West Ambulance teams responded to reports of a collision between a car and a young man on a motorbike.

On arrival, they found the patient had an airway filled with blood and severe head and facial injuries.

Emergency crews intubated the man and got him in an ambulance, with advanced paramedic Luke explaining: “I’ve seen the damage to his helmet. He’s had his helmet on but it’s just imploded. He needs blood. He needs surgery.”

Having left the patient in the hands of the doctors at the hospital, Luke took a breather and reflected on the job at he updated a colleague over the radio: “The gentleman is in for a scan at the moment. He’s got quite massive, I think, haemorrhages. A fractured pelvis.

“He’s quite unwell but definitely the right thing to send me over there. It was a very difficult scene.”

But an update at the end of the programme revealed that the motorcyclist, named Jordan, tragically succumbed to his injuries.

A message on the screen read: “The patient Luke treated at the roadside died in hospital two days later. His family are working to raise awareness of motorbike safety.

“Jordan, 1995 – 2019.”
