Emergency alert after baby stops breathing in Aylsham

Emergency services rushed to the aid of a one-month old baby in Aylsham after she stopped breathing this morning.

The little girl was taken by land ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after she stopped breathing at the town's Hungate Street Surgery.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to help and landed nearby at Keys sale yard. The baby had been resuscitated by a local GP. Dr Haris Begovic and East of England Ambulance Trust critical care paramedic Ben Caine carried out their assessment and escorted the baby by land ambulance to the hospital where she will receive further treatment.

Mr Caine said: 'This mission highlights just how important the air ambulance is to the people of East Anglia. We were able to respond to this emergency in the quickest time and everyone on scene worked well together to make sure the little girl received the best possible pre-hospital critical care.'

The hospital said the baby's condition was 'stable' this afternoon.
