Cain drags Moira outside as James and Emma try to free Pete and Finn. Adam screams for help inside the car as the flames surround him. Cain runs back into the Village Hall to find Debbie. Zak gets up and notices fuel leaking from the helicopter. Chrissie and Robert hear Adam's screams and Robert smashes the car window, dragging Adam out and away from the fire. The car explodes seconds later. Chas and Aaron pull a lifeless Joanie from the rubble. Robert instructs a panicked Chrissie to drive Adam to hospital while he returns to the village. Andy helps Victoria and Kerry free themselves from debris. Kerry and Dan notice Ruby trapped and attempt to free her but she yells out in pain. They try to remain calm at the amount of blood coming from her midsection and realise she has been cut by the helicopter blade. Marlon returns to Mulberry Cottage and breaks the news of the disaster to Rhona and Belle. Sarah worries about Debbie as Marlon and Belle attempt to calm the children. Rhona rushes off to help. Moira calls for ambulances as those dragged from the wreckage sit in shock outside. Emma manages to find Joanie's pulse, but notes it is weak. Robert finds Victoria and tells her that Adam was involved in a fire at the scrapyard but is fine. Kerry and Dan try to move Ruby but she screams out at each of their attempts. They realise they're not going to be able to move her until the paramedics arrive. Fuel continues to leak from the helicopter as it judders causing more debris to crash to the floor. Cain frantically searches for Debbie. Val and Diane find each other in the Maze of Mirrors and surmise that they've been locked in. Dan tries to apply pressure to Ruby's midrift with a jacket but panics as the blood continues to soak through. Kerry encourages him to stay calm. Pete and Cain find Debbie buried under rubble. Ross arrives on the outskirts of the village and notices all the smoke in the distance. Kerry and Dan stay with Ruby as she struggles with her pain.

Zak realises Kyle is missing. Joanie regains consciousness and wails, believing him to be dead. Ross arrives in the village and is horrified to see Pete and Cain bundling a lifeless Debbie into Rhona's car. Zak persuades Cain to stay and look for Kyle. Moira shrieks as he runs back into the building. Inside the Maze of Mirrors, Val and Diane hear screams from outside and wonder what has happened. Their wonder soon turns to arguing however until Val notices Diane's head is bleeding and she notes how she fell when the lights went out. Moira rushes back into the Village Hall after Cain as he searches for Kyle. They begin to suspect he isn't in there and rush out, encouraging Dan and Kerry to do the same as a flames from the sparks move ever close to the fuel leaking from the helicopter. Kerry and Dan refuse to leave Ruby, despite her requests, as she begins to become drowsy. She asks Dan to ring Ali but they discover her phone is off. She realises the paramedics aren't going to make it in time and tells them to pass her love along to Ali and let her know that she was peaceful and without pain before passing away in front of them. Dan and Kerry continue to sit with her. Pete rushes into the hospital with Debbie and she is then rushed to the treatment room.
