Not heard of anything. What time was it at ?

 

Was going to say maybe a bmx'r had been hurt on the skate park or something but they wouldn't need a fire engine for that.

 

I hope whatever it was that 'whoever' is going to be ok.

Apparently the ambulance was transferring someone to a hospital in Leicester (Not sure where from) the helicopter had a problem and had to land in the park. The patient is being transferred now via road, but isn't expected to make it :(

Crikey, Mand, hello and welcome and all that, but that's a helluva 1st post.

 

Hope there's nothing fatal for anyone.

 

Are you close to someone concerned, or do you work for News International?

Hi and thanks for the welcome :). My family live opposite and went over, they got told this by the emergency services on scene.

From the sounds of it the poor patient won't make the journey, such a sad time for the family and thoughts are with them.

Thanks :wink: One flew over here the other day (Tues I think) and at first I thought it was an RAF sea king heli due to the distant yellow colour approaching.

 

Can the air ambulance fly in the dark or are they restricted to daytime/early dusk?

 

Not that any of this helps the poor person from last night's incident of course, sorry :oops:

How do you know it was ?

 

Anyway back to the ambulance not being able to fly.. does that mean if you are in a really bad accident when it is dark or somewhere remote where it is hard for ambulances to get too your chances of surviving are greatly reduced :shock::(

 

Why can't the air ambulance fly at night then? The police helicopter does.. doesn't it ??

Fugs appears to have been right. :wink:

 

The heli that landed at Victoria park was apparently an RAF Seaking like this
