A young rider was left in a ‘serious but stable’ condition after falling from her horse.

Magpas Air Ambulance sent its rapid response vehicle to the scene of the incident, near Wisbech, last night.

Today the emergency charity said: “At 8.14pm last night Magpas doctor Mark Tehan and paramedic Ollie Robinson arrived in a rural location just south of Wisbech via the Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle.

“They had been called to treat a woman who had been injured when she fell from a horse.

“The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient, who was in her 20’s, who had sustained a leg injury.

“They sedated the woman at the scene, providing her with A&E level care, before accompanying her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital via land ambulance, monitoring her condition all the way.

“The patient was in a serious but stable condition upon arrival.”
