A woman in her 70s was taken to hospital following a serious fall.
The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) and the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) were called out at 3.21pm on Tuesday, February 9 after the woman had fallen near Lowestoft.
The Anglia One helicopter was landed "on a nearby grassy area" close to the scene as they assisted the EEAST team.
A spokesman for the EAAA said: “Anglia One was tasked near to Lowestoft to assist EEAST with a woman in her seventies who suffered a fall.
"Doctor Steve Barker and critical care paramedic Rod Wells assisted EEAST by helping to give the patient a full assessment and administering A&E level care at the scene, including splinting an injury.
