A man has died and a woman has been taken to hospital following a house fire in the Black Country last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called by the police to Tame Road in Tipton at 8.12pm last night (Tuesday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers, HART paramedics and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic attended the scene along with police and fire colleagues.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival at the scene, crews found two occupants who had been rescued from the property by fire colleagues and were being given CPR.
“One occupant, a man, was in a critical condition. The team of ambulance staff immediately commenced advanced life support on scene but sadly, despite the best efforts of the emergency services team, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased a short time later.
“The second occupant, a woman, received advanced treatment by ambulance staff who were able to stabilise her condition before she was conveyed on blue lights to Russells Hall Hospital for further emergency care.”
