A look at the split-second decisions that can change a everyday event into a disaster.
A frantic mum calls 999 when her seven-year-old daughter suffers a cardiac arrest, a microlight pilot loses power at 4,000ft and must dodge power cables to land, and two pals on holiday escape their hire car as it goes up in flames.
A mountain biker crashes head first at a jump and an off-duty rescue worker comes to his aid, a grandmother misreads road crossing signs and steps out in front of a biker, and a group of friends on a skiing trip are caught up in an avalanche.
A 12-year-old boy falls from a clifftop on to concrete sea defences. His father arrives at the scene to find emergency workers battling to save his son. And two British adventures are trapped in the ice off Alaska in a bid to cross the Bering Sea.
A retired policeman comes to the aid of a young man after his car careers off a ferry and sinks in the harbour. A climber falls in the Cairngorms, but bad weather makes rescue difficult, and a British pilot must evacuate his plane after a massive engine explosion on take-off.
An amateur racing driver loses control on the track. His car somersaults towards the crash barriers, his safety cage fails, and he is left hanging upside down from the car. Plus a young mum dials 999 suspecting her baby has meningitis, and a runaway bus heads down a hill with passengers still on board.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
