before its onboard paramedic rushed to a nearby address in Berrow
Road to assist ambulance crews with what was understood to be a
suspected cardiac arrest.
spokesperson said the patient had been taken to hospital by land
ambulance following a "medical emergency".
nearby resident told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was quite a shock
to see a helicopter land here in the grounds of Ellen's Cottages
for the first time, but it was skilfully landed by the pilot and
was a wonderful sight. We are great admirers of the work they do."
