A man was airlifted to hospital following a serious fall.

The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) and the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) were called out at about 10.54am on Saturday, May 23 after a man in his 40s was injured in a “fall from height” in Beccles.

The Anglia One helicopter landed on a playing field nearby as they assisted the EEAST team.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “Two ambulances and the East Anglian Air Ambulance attended an address in Beccles following reports of a man injured in a fall from height.

“One patient with a serious head injury was transported to Addenbroooke’s Hospital in Cambridge by air ambulance.”

A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “Anglia One was tasked to Beccles to assist EEAST with a man in his 40s who suffered a fall.

“Doctor Chris Chadwick and HEMS Paramedic Nigel Strange provided enhanced pre-hospital care, including administering advanced pain relief and use of a specialist monitor to fully assess the patient’s injuries.”

The man was then airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment.
