A staff member was taken to hospital yesterday after falling through the ceiling panel of the Poundworld stockroom in Wisbech.
At 10.46am, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Nick Foster and paramedic Jo Lambert) arrived at the store, in Cromwell Business Park, via the Magpas Air Ambulance after a woman in her 30’s suffered a fall, injuring her pelvis.
The Magpas team then worked alongside an EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew to administer pain relief and put measures into place to protect the woman’s injuries.
The patient was subsequently taken by land ambulance, in a stable condition, to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn for further investigation.
The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was chief pilot Richard Eastwood and crew member Steve Hunwicks.
