A teenage survivor of a road crash in Brecon which killed three of his friends and a pensioner says he is "really lucky" to be alive.

Rhys Hunter, 17, from Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, was in the back of a car driven by friend Rhodri Miller.

Rhodri died along with his girlfriend Alesha O'Connor, and friend Corey Price in the collision on the A470 on Friday.

Margaret Challis, 66, from Merthyr Tydfil, travelling in another car, was also killed.

Three other people were taken to hospital, one of whom is in a critical but stable condition.

Rhys said he felt fortunate to escape with a broken thigh bone and minor cuts and bruises.

"It just shows you can lose a life in a matter of seconds and it can happen at any time," he said.

"I bought this necklace when my Gran passed away, and I felt like she was looking over me and helped me survive this considering what happened to other people."
