Prince William will respond to crashes and heart attacks

An aviation consultant for the East Anglia Air Ambulance has said that Prince William will fly a helicopter air ambulance to respond to car crashes and heart attack victims.

His job will be to react to 999 calls as required by the ambulance control. To react to things such as road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests - anything where there is an emergency medical situation where using the helicopter will be in the best interests of the patient.
