Thursday 28th September 2017

Location: Wolds Lane, Wolvey, Warwickshire

Date and time: Sep 28, 4:00 PM, 2017

Two men have been airlifted with serious burns after the light aircraft they were in crashed.

The incident happened in the field beside Wolds Lane, just outside Wolvey in Warwickshire at about 4.00pm on Thursday afternoon.

Two ambulances, a senior paramedic officer and two air ambulances were sent to the scene.  Both the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire travelled with doctors on board.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a single-engined light aircraft that had been completely destroyed by fire.

“Two men had managed to get out and had found help at a nearby farm where workers were cooling their burns with water.

“Both men were anaesthetised at the scene and were airlifted separately to the Regional Burns Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for specialist treatment; both were described as being in a critical condition.”
