A 34-year-old honeymooner who suffered a massive heart attack is rescued from a remote area of Kauai, but the plane runs into a string of thunderstorms on the way to the cardiac center in Honolulu. Later, a Waimea mother goes into labor three months early.
A look at the crew and operations of an air-ambulance service in the Hawaiian Islands begins with a young musician being rescued after a car crash that left him incoherent and unable to move his limbs. Later, a plane hits turbulence on the way to Honolulu, endangering a patient who should be kept immobilized; and a surfer nearly amputates a leg in a lawn-mower accident.
