Emergency services scrambled after Stevenage fall

EMERGENCY services were scrambled today (Thursday) after a 25-year-old woman fell down a flight of stairs in Stevenage.

The East of England Ambulance Service were alerted to an address in Raleigh Crescent at 12.43pm and a paramedic ambulance from Stevenage attended the scene.

Ambulance service spokesman, Gary Sanderson, said: “On arrival the woman who we believe to be 25-years-old was being cared for by a friend.

“Following rapid assessments by paramedics it was decided to call upon the Hertfordshire Air Ambulance to assist at the scene.

“The woman was treated, stabilised and immobilised at the scene by a doctor and the paramedics before she was taken by land to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.”

It is unclear at present if she was taken ill at the top of stairs and fell or sustained an injury after her fall.
