airambulancepelllaneChildren at Ryde Academy had a surprise yesterday afternoon (Friday) when the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance landed at Pell Lane playing fields next to the school.

The assistance of the air ambulance was requested by the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service shortly after 13:30 to an older gentleman who was suffering a suspected heart attack.

In a very quick turnaround, the patient was airlifted to a nearby mainland hospital for treatment, leaving the scene less than 20 minutes after landing.
