Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) battled the wet weather to help a man badly injured whilst working in Silverstone.

They received the emergency call yesterday (Wednesday) at 3.35pm when a 50-year-old man was struck by a large piece of concrete, giving him chest and pelvic injuries.

WNAA landed at the scene within 15 minutes and worked alongside East Midlands Ambulance Service, an on-site medical team and the patient’s work colleagues to treat the patient before airlifting him to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire.

His current condition is unknown.

WNAA believes its patients should be able to reach specialist treatment no matter where their incident happens. The sooner they reach the most relevant hospital for their injuries the greater their chance of survival and recovery.

WNAA receive no government funding and rely solely on public donations to keep its helicopter flying. To make a donation, please visit www.wnaa.org.uk/donate or call 08454 130999.
