At 6:30am this morning (30th) Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Zoe Smeed and Paramedic Chris Hawkins) arrived on the A141, south of March, via the Magpas Rapid Response BMW. A bus with 65 people on board, had left the road and ended up on its side in a ditch.
The Magpas Doctor and Paramedic assessed 22 patients (between 17 and 60 years old), whilst working alongside EEAST Ambulance Service Paramedic Crews, HART Crews and Cambridgeshire Police at the roadside. These patients suffered a combination of head, chest and leg injuries – as well as headaches. Fortunately no one endured any life threatening injuries. Five patients were subsequently taken to Peterborough City Hospital in land ambulances for further treatment.
Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service Crews were also present. Magpas would like to thank all the Emergency Services for their excellent teamwork.
This incident also highlights the importance of the Magpas 24/7 service – lifesaving care by land and air in the East of England and beyond.
This is all the information we have.
