Man given lifesaving care in Lichfield

Claire Brown – Thursday 23rd July 2020 – 12.15pm.

A car driver received advanced life support by ambulance staff this morning in Lichfield after the car he was driving collided with a lamppost.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Eastern Avenue in Lichfield at 8.30am today (Thursday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A passing ambulance came across the incident three minutes after the 999 call was made to find the driver of a car, a man, in a critical condition. The crew commenced resuscitation on scene and, once joined by ambulance colleagues, they worked as a team to administer advanced life support and managed to restart the man’s heart. The man was taken, in a serious condition, by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Derby Hospital for further specialist care.”

  1. Hi,

    We were there with the man until the ambulance came. Please can you let me know if he’s ok?

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Rachel…

      Firstly, thank you for doing what you did at the scene of the incident – not everyone is prepared to assist others, particularly during the current pandemic.

      In regards to your question, unfortunately, once we take the patient to hospital, we don’t get an update on their condition.

      Thanks again and apologies that we can’t give you more information.
