Wisbech, man crushed by timber – Magpas Air Ambulance flies to the scene

At 2.52pm today (20th), Magpas Doctor Ed Barnard and Paramedic Alex Pearce landed in Wisbech, via the Magpas Air Ambulance, to treat a man who was crushed after some timber fell on him.

The Magpas medical team assessed the man (in his 40’s) who had sustained injuries to his leg.
