A man has collapsed after a game of golf.

The Magpas Helimedix air ambulance was sent to a house near Ipswich where a man in his 70s had collapsed and gone into cardiac arrest after coming back from a game of golf.

A bystander gave initial CPR before a crew from the East of England Ambulance Service arrived and performed advanced life support.

The Helimedix provided the man with specialist accident and emergency care at the scene before accompanying the patient in a Land Ambulance to Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. On arrival at the hospital, the man was in a serious but stable condition.
