Nearly 20 years ago, Brian Baker’s car was involved in a collision with a lorry on the A140. He sustained critical head and facial injuries and was trapped in his vehicle for nearly an hour. A SARS doctor managed to keep him alive by inserting a special breathing tube into his airway - the first time that this technique had been used in pre-hospital care anywhere in the world. Brian subsequently underwent emergency brain surgery, but despite suffering critical injuries, he made a magnificent recovery. Brian was 58 at the time but after his incident he returned to work, has celebrated his 60th and 70th birthdays, his golden wedding anniversary and the birth of his grandchildren. Brian’s story is a powerful illustration of why we do what we do and it’s legacy for life.
