Man Suffers Fall At Property In Solihull

Tuesday 21st April 2020

Location: Solihull, West Midlands

Date and time: Apr 21, 2:00 PM, 2020

The Midlands Air Ambulance landed in Solihull this afternoon (Tuesday, April 21) after being called out to a man who had suffered a fall at a property.

The helicopter was photographed flying in low as it joined paramedic teams who administered emergency treatment to the patient in Lyndon Road.

He was taken by land ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further treatment.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "We were called to reports of a patient who had fallen at a property in Lyndon Road, Solihull, at 2.15pm.

"An ambulance, paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended. The patient, a man, was given trauma care on scene before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham by land ambulance for further treatment."

The air ambulance is thought to have landed either in a playing field at St Margaret's School in Richmond Road or Jubilee Park on Lyndon Road, spending around 45 minutes at the scene.

The lifesaving air service, based at Stensham Airbase in Worcester, is kept airborne by a charity that is relying on goodwill more than ever during the Covid-19 crisis.
