At 10:50am this morning, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Nick Scott and Paramedic Chris Hawkins) arrived in the Abbots Ripton area via the Magpas Helimedix Rapid Response BMW. A car had left the road and ended up on its roof in a ditch, leaving a woman (in her 20’s) trapped.
When the Magpas team arrived at the scene, members of Cambridgeshire Police had safely removed a young boy (who was unhurt) from the car. The Helimedix worked alongside a Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Crew to get the woman out of the vehicle (removing its roof in the process). The Magpas team then worked alongside EEAST Ambulance Paramedics to assess the patient, who suffered an arm injury. She was subsequently taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital by land ambulance in a stable condition.
A dog was also the car at the time of the incident and suffered a scratch to its face. The canine patient was promptly wrapped in a blanket by the Emergency Services, ready to be taken to the vet as soon as possible.
All the Emergency Services worked extremely well together.
