At 7:08pm last night (20th) Magpas Doctor Steve Corry-Bass and Paramedic Steve Chambers landed in Houghton Regis via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a boy who had been injured in a collision between a car and bicycle.
The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his teens) who had sustained a serious head injury. They placed him into a medically induced coma at the scene (providing him with A&E level care) in order to protect his injuries and accompanied him to Addenbrooke's Hospital via land ambulance. The boy was in a stable condition upon arrival.
The helicopter crew who flew the medical team were Chief Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crewmember Simon Amos.
An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew and Bedfordshire Police were also in attendance.
We have no further information.
