AIR AMBULANCE CALLED OUT TO TRESCO AT THE WEEKEND

The Cornwall Air Ambulance came to the aid of a woman on Tresco on Sunday, after she broke her ankle while out walking.​

A Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokesman told The Cornishman: "Tresco coastguards assisted paramedics from South Western Ambulance Service in moving a lady with a broken ankle to a suitable area from where the Cornwall Air Ambulance took over.

 

The casualty was taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske.

 

This was the 5th mission that Cornwall Air Ambulance have flown to the Isles of Scilly in 2016.

 

The service receives no direct government funding and costs around £3 million a year to operate.

 

‘Mission Maker’ is the Cornwall Air Ambulance lottery that offers the chance of a weekly jackpot of £1,000 whilst doing your bit to keep the helicopter flying.

 

There's also a 2nd prize of £250, a 3rd prize of £150 and 10 consolation prizes of £10.
