Liz Gunn talks with Iain Lee, TalkRADIO night host in London, who is being labelled a hero after receiving a call from a young man who had just had a drug overdose outside a Plymouth nightclub.

While Iain talked to Chris on-air for half an hour, his producer called the Police and ordered the man an ambulance. 

Chris told Iain Lee that he was depressed and planned to take his own life through the drug overdose that night.
