Flying doctors are tending to a patient at a property near Woodside, where an ambulance crew from the Isle of Wight Ambulance is already in attendance.
The air ambulance responded to the incident shortly before 18:50, circling overhead by 19:00 before spending several minutes identifying a suitable landing site.
A member of the public has assisted in transporting the HEMS team from the helicopter to the scene of the emergency down a bumpy track.
It’s the second time today that the air ambulance has been scrambled to the Island, with the day crew attending a serious crash at Blackwater this lunchtime. Yesterday (Sunday) the specialist crew responded to another medical emergency in Ashey.
UPDATE @ 21:45 – After some 2-and-a-half hours on the ground, the air ambulance has taken off from Wootton.
No patients have been conveyed to a mainland hospital. The helicopter has instead redeployed to another incident in Southampton.
