Magpas Helimedix and East of England Ambulance crews were called to a house in Abbots Way, Ely, following reports that a man in his twenties was having difficulty breathing.

A spokesman for Magpas said: “The Magpas team put crucial measures into place to protect the patient’s breathing and anaesthetised him, whilst working alongside an ambulance crew.

“The Helimedix then accompanied the man in an ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital - monitoring his condition all the way. On arrival at the hospital the patient was in a critical but stable condition.

“A rapid response paramedic and Cambridgeshire police were also on the scene.”

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service added: “The man had gone into cardiac arrest following a suspected drugs overdose.”
