Film Clip: Collapsed Lung

A grandfather and his grandson are critically injured in a suicide bombing and are unable to breath.  British medics perform emergency surgery to try to save their lives.

One of two clips taken from Doctors and Nurses at War: Afghanistan, a three part series following the work of NHS medical staff working on the battlefield in Afghanistan, transmitted on ITV1 in 2009.

“Compelling documentary..a fascinating view of the medical unit and its role.” The Sunday Times
