At 6.26pm yesterday evening (4th) Magpas Doctor Vijayasankar and Paramedic Alex Pearce landed in a rural location south of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a man who had been injured in a motorcycle collision.
The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his 20’s) who had suffered multiple injuries, including a serious leg injury. The team sedated the man at the scene (providing him with A&E level care), which allowed them to splint the injury before they accompanied him to University Hospital Coventry via land ambulance. The patient was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.
The helicopter crew who flew the medical team were Chief Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crewmember Lee Kennedy.
An EMAS Ambulance Service paramedic crew and Northamptonshire Police were also in attendance.
We have no further information.
