The Observes episode 1 (HELIMED 1) Part 2 We rejoin the team as they transport their RTC victim to St Charlottes ED, attend a serious accident, and Bruce starts his night shift, meets the Trauma team and gets a taste of Charlottesburg football violence.
As the team prepare to leave the scene, Police accident investigators arrive to attempt to make sense of the crash.
