A Magpas Air Ambulance crew was called to the scene of a man who had collapsed near Downham yesterday (Tuesday, January 3).

At 1.50pm two Magpas doctors and a paramedic landed in a rural location east of the town.

The medical team placed the man into an induced coma, giving him A&E level care at the scene.

They then accompanied the patient by land ambulance to Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and upon arrival at the hospital he was in a serious but stable condition.
