A Magpas Helimedix air ambulance landed in Haverhill yesterday (Sunday 22) to assist a man who had suffered a cardiac arrest.
The emergency medical charity’s helicopter landed in a school playground at about 12.15pm to treat the man, who is in his 40s.
When the Magpas team arrived, an EEAST Ambulance Paramedic was providing advanced support for the patient.
The Helimedix then anaesthetised the man, before accompanying him in a land ambulance to Papworth Hospital, monitoring his condition all the way.
On arrival at the hospital, the patient was in a serious but stable condition.
The helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was: Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crew Member George Phillips.
Magpas volunteer paramedic Steve Chambers said: “We would like to thank the EEAST Ambulance paramedic who was also at the scene.
“He worked brilliantly and was extremely helpful.”
