A man had to be taken to hospital after he fell unconscious while jumping into a pond.

The incident happened in Halstead at around 3.45pm yesterday afternoon.

A crew from the East Anglian Air Ambulance flew straight to the scene from an earlier incident at Walton-on-the-Naze, but the man had regained concsciousness before the crew arrived.

He was then taken by land ambulance to Ipswich Hospital.

  • I am certain that the last line is wrong. No way would a patient be taken by land ambulance from Halstead to Ipswich hospital, a trip of nearly 40 miles. There are two much nearer Essex hospitals at Colchester and Broomfield.
