A doctor who rushed to the scene of a road accident while walking his dog ended up performing CPR on his fiancée.
Scot Brading, 30, was unable to save the life of Meghan Ambrozevich-Blair, 26, who was being given first aid by another off-duty doctor when he arrived.
He had been out walking their dog Milo close to the scene on the A1 in East Lothian, Scotland.

Meghan Ambrozevich-Blair and Scot Brading had only recently got engaged and were looking forward to spending their life together.
Truck driver Michael Friel, 57, admitted killing Meghan – who was posthumously awarded a first-class honours degree in veterinary science by Edinburgh Napier University – in a head-on collision.
Moments before the crash he performed a three-point turn on a dual carriageway when he realised he was going the wrong way. Five other cars had to swerve out of his way, flashing their lights at him, but he appeared oblivious to the danger, staring straight ahead while driving.
He asked a firefighter at the scene ‘when did this become a one way?’ but was told that it had always been like that. Friel, who suffered fractures in the crash, has now been told he should expect a substantial prison sentence for killing Meghan. Meghan’s family said in a statement that their ‘world fell apart when our beautiful Meghan was taken from us’.

Meghan had recently started telling people that she was going to marry Scot and they were planning their life together. Her family’s statement said: ‘Meghan was talented, caring and loving in every way. She loved life and had it all in front of her. ‘We lost an incredible daughter and sister, and her fiancé lost his soulmate and the family they planned to have. ‘The suffering we have endured over the last two years since that day has been horrendous. ‘We never thought it was possible to be in so much pain and still be alive. We have faith that whatever punishment the court decides to impose will reflect the severity of this crime.’
