An air ambulance was sent to deal with a man who suffered leg injuries following an awkward parachute landing near March.

The Magpas Helimedix team flew to the North London Parachute Centre, near Wimblington, at about 11.55am on Sunday morning.

Helimedix doctor David Driver and paramedic Phil Almond arrived at the centre by the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance where a man in his 30’s suffered injuries to his leg, following an awkward parachute landing.

The Helimedix team assessed the patient and put measures into place to protect his leg, whilst working alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew at the scene.

The man was then taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in a stable condition in a land ambulance.

The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was pilot Richard Eastwood and crew member George Phillips.
