Richard Bacon didn't expect to be put into a coma when he attended his local hospital following a flight from the US.
The former Blue Peter presenter tweeted pictures of himself at his local A&E - unaware of what was to come. Doctors told him he had a life-threatening lung infection and were forced to place him a medically induced coma - not doing so would could have killed him.
Now on the road to recovery, the DJ and TV presenter gave thanks to the NHS for saving his life. He fears though that if former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's plans to shut Lewisham hospital down had gone ahead - his story might have been very different.
