A man has been taken to the James Paget Hospital in a life-threatening condition after a serious fall in Lowestoft this morning.

The incident happened at around 10.15am and was attended by a number of medical services.

A volunteer critical care paramedic from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service charity was mobilised to the scene and worked with paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service to resuscitate the patient who had gone into cardiac arrest.

The SARS CCP deployed a specialist automated chest compression device to help treat the patient.

The SARS CCP then, working with a team from the East Anglian Air Ambulance who had subsequently arrived at the scene, made several pre-hospital surgical interventions before the patient was transferred by land ambulance to the James Paget Hospital in a life-threatening condition.
