It was an ordinary day for Matt Hannam who was fixing his son's tree house roof, when he took a drop and the day took a turn for the worse.

In this short video (4 minutes), Matt and his two children describe their tense experience, but also how the emergency critical care Matt received inspired them to become community fundraisers for the Devon Air Ambulance service. 

Content warning: mention of injury and of blood (video below).
