At 3:58pm on Saturday afternoon (26th), Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Tom Odbert and Paramedic Keir Rutherford) arrived in a rural area of Ipswich, via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance. A man (in his 70’s) suffered a collapse and went into cardiac arrest at a residential address, following a game of golf. A bystander gave initial CPR, before EEAST Ambulance Crews arrived and performed advanced life support.
The Helimedix provided the man with specialist A&E level care at the scene. The Magpas team then accompanied the patient in a Land Ambulance to Norfolk & Norwich Hospital (monitoring his condition all the way). On arrival at the hospital, the man 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.
Two EEAST Ambulance Crews, an EEAST Ambulance Rapid Response Paramedic and the Police were all present. Everyone worked extremely well together.
This is all the information we have at present.
