"She says Prince Harry and Meghan want to meet you, and I've gone 'unbelievable is this real, like pinch me for goodness sake,'" paramedic Graeme Cooper told media.

The humble paramedics said it was a "blessing" to be able to fulfil the dying woman's last wish to see the ocean.

"If you can do something special for them, even though their life's coming to an end, you can give them a fulfilment and that fulfilment is something that's a blessing for us to be able to give," Mr Cooper said.

The paramedics recalled the woman looked up at them and said "I'm at peace, everything is right".
