Cambridgeshire man falls 30ft from tree – Magpas Helimedix fly to scene
At 12:31pm Saturday afternoon, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Maria Smith and Paramedic Dan Read) arrived in a residential area near Little Paxton, via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance – after a man (in his 30’s) suffered a 30 foot fall from a tree and endured chest and hip injuries.
The Magpas team were the first on the scene. They assessed the patient, before partially sedating him and putting measures into place to protect his chest and hip. They then accompanied the man in a Land Ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital. On arrival at the hospital, he was in a serious but stable condition.
The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was: Pilot Andy Figg and Crew Member George Phillips.
An EEAST Ambulance Crew, a Critical Care Paramedic (who also happens to volunteer for Magpas) and an Officer were present. All the Emergency Services worked extremely well together.
This is all the information we have at present.
