A woman was left seriously injured in a rural location just south of Wisbech after she fell from a horse last night (May 2).

A Magpas Air Ambulance team was called to the scene at around 8.14pm.

Magpas doctor Mark Tehan and paramedic Ollie Robinson arrived in a rapid response vehicle. They had been called to treat a woman who had been injured in a fall from a horse.

The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in her 20’s) who had sustained a leg injury.

They sedated the woman at the scene (providing her with A&E level care) before accompanying her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital via land ambulance, monitoring her condition all the way.

The patient was in a serious but stable condition upon arrival.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew were also in attendance.
