Air Ambulance called to Sheringham to assist monitoring elderly woman
A woman in her 80s was rushed to hospital last week, overseen by both East Anglian land and air ambulances.
The services were called to Beeston Regis near Sheringham on June 27, to reports that the woman was having difficulties breathing.
First response medics treated the Regis Avenue resident, and decided she needed to be taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
A spokesperson from the East of England Ambulance Service said: 'The Air Ambulance were called because the patient was in a serious condition, and they were there to closely monitor her in case her condition deteriorated.
'Luckily from out logs, it would appear that this didn't happen.'
