Wisbech man suffers fall from scaffolding – Magpas Helimedix fly to scene
At 2:17pm this afternoon, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor David Driver and Paramedic Dan Read) arrived at a building site in Wisbech, via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance. A man (in his 70’s) suffered a 10 foot fall from some scaffolding and suffered chest injuries.
The Magpas team worked alongside EEAST Ambulance Crews to assess the patient, before moving the man safely into a Land Ambulance. The Helimedix then accompanied the man to King’s Lynn Hospital, by land, continuing to administer pain relief en route. On arrival at the hospital, the man was in a stable condition.
The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene: Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crew Member George Phillips.
An EEAST Ambulance Officer and Rapid Response Paramedic were also present. All the Emergency Services worked extremely well together.
