At 4:02pm yesterday afternoon (30th) Magpas Doctor Tom Odbert and Paramedic Steve Chambers landed in Wisbech via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a man who had been seriously injured in an incident involving industrial machinery.

The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his 20’s) who had sustained serious chest injuries. They gave the man advanced pain relief and sedated him at the scene in order to treat his injuries (providing him with A&E level care), before airlifting him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he was in a stable condition upon arrival.

The helicopter crew who flew the medical team and patient were Pilot Chris Sherriff and Crewmember Matt Tacon.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew were also in attendance.

We have no further information.
