Halfway through a shift an emergency call is received with reports of a high-speed collision involving trapped persons and a patient in critical condition.

Chris and Becca and the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service are immediately dispatched to the scene.

The heat will be factor, but Stephen Bradley's boys have hardly put a foot wrong so far, with four wins and just one defeat in their six European games this summer.

If they can keep the tie alive ahead of next week's second leg, it's going to set up some night in Tallaght Stadium, where they've a pretty impressive European record.
