A man who broke his leg Wales had to wait three hours an ambulance to arrive. Luigi Segadelli, 30, broke his leg while playing a rugby match in Swansea, Wales. His medical team called for ambulance and the game was stopped while they waited it to arrive. The players and officials waited and waited but no ambulance turned . In the end, the match was called . Stadium workers had to turn the floodlights so Mr Segadelli would not have to wait the dark. His teammates covered him blankets to protect him the 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 a local hospital. He needed an operation to repair his broken leg. Doctors put metal pins his leg to make sure it heals properly. Segadelli is not happy his experience. He told reporters: "I want an apology the delay. They must have the decency to make sure it does not happen anyone else again." He explained what happened while he was waiting the ambulance. He said: "I was cold and shaking. When the paramedics saw how long it was taking to get colour into my foot, they said it was a big concern because I had been the cold so long there was a risk losing my foot." The Welsh Ambulance Service said it had been very busy that day.
