Fenland schoolboy, 10, taken to hospital with burns to face and chest
A FENLAND schoolboy was taken to hospital on Saturday night with burns to his chest and face.
The Magpas Helimedix team flew to the 10-year-old’s home in Welney, near Downham Market, on a shared Magpas and Cambridgeshire police helicopter at 5.42pm.
The team assisted the ambulance crew and provided pre-hospital care whilst escorting him by land ambulance to Addenbrookes Hospital, in Cambridge.
On arrival the youngster was described as being in a serious but stable condition.
Debbie Florence, from Magpas, said: “This incident highlights how crucial our service is especially at night.
