“The initial reports were that he had suffered significant injuries in the groin area, but when the crew examined the 54-year-old they found that he had only suffered lacerations to his right thigh.

“He was taken to Colchester General Hospital for further assessment and treatment. Clearly the situation could have been far more serious had the injuries been in a slightly different area.
