PHOTO CAPTION: Magpas Air Ambulance lands next to EEAST HART team near scene of incident
At 2:10pm on Saturday afternoon (2nd), Magpas Doctor Phil Morgan and Paramedic Simon Standen landed near some tall, dense woodland (north of Woburn) via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They were called out to treat a man (in his late 20’s) who suffered a fall, in the midst of doing a jump on a mountain bike.
The Magpas team assessed the patient who had sustained serious back injuries. They provided him with pain relief and immobilised him to protect his injuries, before flying him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further investigation. On arrival at the hospital, the man was in a serious but stable condition.
The helicopter crew who flew the patient and the Magpas medical team were Pilot Andy Figg and Crewmember Lee Kennedy.
An EEAST paramedic crew and EEAST Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were also in attendance.
