Emergency services were called to a house in Bugbrooke near Northampton on Sunday.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) and Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) were called out after a 58-year-old man went into cardiac arrest.

EMAS were first on the scene to provide advanced life support. The crew successfully restored spontaneous circulation in the patient, but requested the attendance of WNAA to help with stabilisation.

A spokesman for WNAA said: “WNAA left their base at Coventry Airport at around 11.45am and landed in a nearby park 11 minutes later.

“On WNAA’s arrival, the patient was successfully anaesthetised before being immobilised and flown to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The patient’s condition was stable on handover to hospital staff at around 12.50pm.”
