Student inspired by paramedics who saved her

A student who survived a devastating car crash was inspired to train as a paramedic by the London Ambulance Service crews who saved her life.

Molly Tarawally, 21, was driving on the A406 in north London when her car was crushed between two lorries.

The crash happened during the summer holidays, just before Molly was meant to start university to study geography.

Molly, from Enfield, was treated at the scene for more than an hour before being transferred to the Royal London Hospital by London’s Air Ambulance.

She had to spend 10 days in hospital recovering from broken bones and pelvic and facial injuries.

She said: “It gave me a lot of thinking time and it was while I was in hospital I decided I wanted to work for the NHS and change my degree to something vocational.

“I wanted to be a paramedic but it was hard to imagine actually doing the job.”
