Peterborough, man impaled on railings – Magpas Air Ambulance called to scene


At 1:26am in the early hours of Christmas Day morning (25th), Magpas Doctor Ed Barnard and Paramedic Alex Pearce arrived in central Peterborough, via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response BMW. They had been called out, after a man’s arm had been impaled on some metal railings.

The Magpas medical team gave the patient (in his 20’s) advanced pain relief and sedated him (providing him with A&E level care there and then). The Magpas team then worked closely with a Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service crew to remove the man safely from the railing. They then accompanied the patient in a land ambulance to Peterborough City Hospital. Upon arrival at the hospital, the man was in a stable condition.

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