At 12.14pm this afternoon (8th) Magpas Doctor Richard Booker and Paramedics Alex Pearce and Dan Cody landed in Downham Market, Norfolk via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called by an EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew to a woman who had suffered a suspected stroke.

The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in her 60’s) who was critically ill. They placed her into a medically induced coma and took control of her breathing at the scene (providing her with A&E level care) before airlifting her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, where she was in a critical condition upon arrival.

The helicopter crew who flew the medical team and patient were Pilot Andy Figg and Crewmember Rob Davies.
