Sawtry, man seriously injured by machinery – Magpas Air Ambulance flies to him

At 2:42pm yesterday afternoon (25th) Magpas Doctor Adriana Cordier, Paramedic Dan Read and Doctor Simon Lewis landed in Sawtry via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a man who had been seriously injured in an incident involving industrial machinery.

The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his 20’s) who had sustained a serious limb injury. They sedated the patient and provided him with a local anaesthetic at the scene (providing him with A&E level care), before accompanying him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital via land ambulance. The man was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew and the Cambridge Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance.

The helicopter crew who flew the medical team were Chief Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crewmember Simon Amos.

We have no further information.
