Nr St Neots, man goes into cardiac arrest at petrol station - Magpas Air Ambulance called to the scene

At 7.14am on Sunday morning (15th), two advanced medical teams from Magpas Air Ambulance arrived at a petrol station north of St Neots via two rapid response vehicles. They had been called to treat a man who had gone into cardiac arrest.

The Magpas medical teams assessed the man (in his 40’s) and provided him with advanced life support. They then accompanied him by land ambulance to Hinchingbrooke Hospital for immediate care. One team then assisted in transferring the patient by road to Papworth Hospital for specialist care. He is currently in a stable condition in hospital.

As the call for Magpas Air Ambulance’s lifesaving care came in during a handover period between the two teams, both attended to ensure the man received the highest level of care possible.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew and Cambridgeshire Police were also in attendance.
