A boy has broken both his wrists and ankle after falling from a sea wall.
The air ambulance attended the scene in Cromer on Saturday where the boy is understood to have fallen some distance from a wall.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) was called at 3pm and arrived on the scene 15 minutes later to transport the patient to the Norfolk and Norwich hospital.
The first emergency call had gone in at 1.45pm, with the East of England Ambulance Trust attending.
A spokesperson for the EAAA said: 'There was a delay between the initial ambulance call and the air ambulance being sent but this isn't unusual.
