Man airlifted after Mundesley seafront collapse

A man in his 60s was treated by air ambulance medics on a north Norfolk seafront today (Wednesday) and airlifted to hospital for treatment.

The incident happened at Mundesley at lunchtime when the man collapsed on the promenade

Although he was not thought to be in a life-threatening condition, the East Air Ambulance was scrambled at 12.30pm to help because of the need to get speedy medical treatment to the location which would have been difficult for a land ambulance to reach.

The clinical team of Dr Haris Begovic and East of England critical care paramedic Ben Caine were flown to the scene by Captain Neil Waller and landed on the beach nearby. The casualty was treated at the scene then flown to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
