Magpas Helimedix said today they arrived at the scene last night and quickly administered pain relief after a woman (in her late teens) suffered neck and back injuries.

Magpas say their team worked alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew to stabilize her condition and she was then taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by ambulance.

The Helimedix assessed a second woman (also in her teens) who suffered minor injuries and a man (in his 40’s) who suffered chest pain - both patients were taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

“Sadly, despite all the Magpas team’s best efforts, one woman died at the scene - our thoughts are with her family at this time,” said a Magpas spokesman.

“An EEAST Paramedic and an EEAST Ambulance Crew were also present, everyone worked extremely well together. A Papworth nurse and a paediatric nurse (who were stuck in nearby traffic) also stopped to assist and were incredibly helpful.”
