Patient Story: Samantha Sugden

The Great North Air Ambulance Service airlifted triathlete Samantha Sudgen for a second time. 

Samantha Sugden was riding her bike through the Lake District, when she collided with a bus, suffering an ruptured spleen and requiring lifesaving surgery to remove it.

A GNAAS doctor and paramedic team flew to treat her at the roadside, before airlifting her to the Cumbria Infirmary in Carlisle.

The incident occurred just fourteen months after Miss Sugden was first airlifted, when she hit a sinkhole while cycling with friends. The second call out was captured on camera by the Emergency Helicopter Medics team.

Tune in to More 4 on Sundays at 9pm to see this story unfold, or read more below.
