Air ambulance lands on Harleston play park

The East Anglian Air Ambulance landed on a play park in Harleston after a teenager collapsed at his home.

A 17-year-old boy was treated by medics from the air ambulance today following his collapse.

The clinical team were flown to the scene in Anglia One from Norwich Airport and landed in a play park near to the patient in Bullfinch Drive.

The medical crew worked closely with colleagues from the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, who were already on scene, to assess and monitor the patient before he was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by the land crew for further assessment.
