A man was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after suffering a suspected drugs overdose on Tuesday night.
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.
