Air Ambulance on 999 call out to Formby

ON 14 October 2013, the Air Ambulance landed next to the public footpath part of St Luke's Church Road, on the corner of Range High School playingfield to a casualty on the privet road and public footpath, at the back of the houses on Elsworth Close, Formby. Sefton Range Service, NWAS and the NW Air Ambulance were in attendance.

The North West Air ambulance told us that:- "We had a call come in at 15:05 requesting us to attended an equestrianism incident in Formby. The incident had resulted in a female, in her 20's, falling from a horse when she was out riding. She was suspected of having head injury and was taken to transferred by our Air Ambulance, from the incident site, to Preston Hospital."

The North West Air Ambulance is a charity which has been flying life-saving missions throughout the North West region since 1999. The service provides urgent hospital transfers for critically ill or injured patients, particularly those needing to travel long distances for emergency surgery, and those with spinal injuries. As in this case, any casualty with an injury to the head and suffering a fall like this should be assumed to have a neck (spinal) injury as well and will often be treated accordingly. Sadly the service can only run with public support, so please go to the NWAA website and make a donation and help the "Yellow Bird" say flying high and saving lives...
