Air ambulance lands in Burnham to help child after cardiac arrest

An air ambulance landed in Burnham-On-Sea on Friday evening (19th February) to help a child who had suffered a suspected cardiac arrest.

The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance touched down in the grounds of King Alfred School, as pictured above.

The paramedics joined land ambulance crews in helping the child at a home in nearby Oxford Street at around 5pm.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance spokeswoman Tracey Bartrum told "We were called to help a child who had suffered a suspected cardiac arrest, who was conveyed to Bristol Children's Hospital."

Our thoughts go to the family for a quick recovery.
