24 Hours in A&E

Series 10 - Episode 10



In an edition of the documentary focusing on fathers and sons, 51-year-old builder Rod is rushed into A&E after falling 18 feet from scaffolding onto concrete. When scans reveal that he has fractured some of his vertebrae and will require extensive surgery, his wife Nicky is left to call their two sons to prepare them for bad news. Meanwhile, 86-year-old retired policeman John is brought to St George's with a head injury after falling off a wall. As doctors assess the severity of the damage, he talks about how his career took over his life, so much so that he missed the birth of his son. Plus, 19-year-old cyclist Mack requires specialist help for a dislocated shoulder, after he collided with a Porsche. His dad explains how adopting him and his brother changed all of their lives.
