Milton Keynes, man falls 20ft down manhole – Magpas Air Ambulance flies to him

At 8:48am this morning (5th), Magpas Doctor Scott Castell, Paramedic Alex Pearce and Doctor Nathan Howes landed in a field in Milton Keynes via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a man who had suffered a fall (approximately 20ft) down an open manhole shaft.

The Magpas enhanced medical team worked alongside Hazardous Area Response Teams (HART), South Central Ambulance Service paramedic crews (SCAS) and Fire and Rescue Service Crews to safely move the patient (in his 40’s) out of the confined, underground space. The Magpas doctor and paramedic assessed the man who had sustained a serious injury to his lower leg. They sedated the patient (giving him A&E level care) and then accompanied him to Milton Keynes Hospital via land ambulance, where the man was in a stable condition upon arrival.

The Magpas Air Ambulance helicopter crew who flew the medical team were Pilot Al White and Technical Crew Member Steve Hunwicks.
