An air ambulance was called to March on Saturday after a woman fell from her horse.

At 3:37pm Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Charles Johnson and Paramedic Keir Rutherford) arrived at a field in March, via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance.

A woman (in her 30’s) suffered a fall from a horse, leaving her with shoulder injuries.

The Magpas team worked alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew at the scene, to assess the patient and administer pain relief. The woman was then taken to Peterborough City Hospital in a land ambulance, for further observation.

The woman’s condition is not known.
