Heart attack train driver's dramatic rail rescue

The train driver who collapsed with a heart attack at the controls of his trans-Pennine express has been reunited with the passengers who saved his life.

David Graham, 50, was driving between Scarborough and Liverpool when he suffered chest pains on a stretch of track in North Yorkshire.

An appeal for anyone with medical training was met by a group of nurses returning from a seaside hen party.

BBC programme Helicopter Heroes filmed David being airlifted from the train by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service.

Helicopter Heroes is broadcast on Monday, 20 May at 09:15 BST on BBC One and nationwide on the iPlayer for seven days thereafter.
