Littleport child and horse incident – Magpas Helimedix fly to scene
At 7:58pm on Saturday night (26th), Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Tom Odbert and Paramedic Keir Rutherford) arrived in a rural area of Littleport, via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance – after a young girl was kicked by a horse and suffered injuries to her head and face.
The Helimedix assessed the child, whilst working alongside an EEAST Ambulance Paramedic. Fortunately, the young patient’s condition proved to be non-life threatening. The little girl was then taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a Land Ambulance (with her mother at her side), for further observation.
The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was: Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crew Member George Phillips.
An EEAST Ambulance Crew was also present. Everyone worked well together.
This is all the information we have at present.
