Man flown to Blackpool hospital after air ambulance lands in Barrow Park

A MAN has been flown to hospital in Blackpool after a North West Air Ambulance helicopter landed in Barrow Park.

Park users were startled when the chopper appeared overhead and touched down on the grass at about 3.50pm.

It had been dispatched from its base in Preston after receiving a report than a man was suffering cardiac problems and needed emergency transport.

Two air ambulance staff then made their way towards the Norwood Medical Centre on Abbey Road.

A ground ambulance, which was called at 2.46pm, also attended the scene and conveyed the man from the centre to the helicopter.

At 4.13pm the patient was flown to the specialist cardiac centre at the Blackpool Victoria Hospital.


Have your say

The government needs to fund the North West Air Ambulance, its vital to the people of the north west !!!
