Good Luck.
man who broke his leg in Wales had to wait for three hours for ambulance to arrive. Luigi Segadelli, 30, broke his leg while playing in rugby match in Swansea, Wales. His medical team called for ambulance and game was stopped while they waited for it to arrive. players and officials waited and waited but no ambulance turned up. In end, match was called off. Stadium workers had to turn floodlights on so Mr Segadelli would not have to wait in dark. His teammates covered him in blankets to protect him from cold. The ambulance service told people not to move Mr Segadelli as his injury could become worse. An ambulance finally arrived three hours later.

Mr Segadelli is now recovering in local hospital. He needed operation to repair his broken leg. Doctors put metal pins in his leg to make sure it heals properly. Segadelli is not happy with his experience. He told reporters: "I want apology for delay. They must have decency to make sure it does not happen to anyone else again." He explained what happened while he was waiting for ambulance. He said: "I was cold and shaking. When the paramedics saw how long it was taking to get colour back into my foot, they said it was big concern because I had been in the cold so long there was risk of losing my foot." Welsh Ambulance Service said it had been very busy that day.
