A young boy was given roadside emergency care after he and an adult male were trapped inside a car following a multi vehicle accident in Wimblington.

Magpas Air Ambulance crew arrived at the scene to give A&E level road side care to the youngster in the incident on Friday 8.

The boy and the male were taken by land ambulance to PeterborOugh City Hospital.

Magpas doctor Sam Todd and paramedic Keiran Bromley arrived in the Wimblington area via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response BMW after emergency services were called at 8.50pm.

A Magpas spokesman said: “The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed a young boy who had sustained head injuries and gave him advanced pain relief providing A&E level care at the roadside.

“They then worked alongside an EEAST ambulance service paramedic crew and Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service to safely remove the young patient and an adult male who were both trapped inside one of the vehicles.

“Both patients were then taken to Peterborough City Hospital, in a stable condition, by land ambulance.”

The East of England Ambulance Service Trust had requested their hospital level skills at the scene of a multi-vehicle road traffic collision.

Cambridgeshire Police were also in attendance.
