A man and a woman had an “incredibly lucky” escape when they walked away from a helicopter crash today (Wed).
A shocking picture of the wrecked chopper resting on its side was posted on Twitter.
West Midlands Ambulance Service scrambled to a field in Naunton Beauchamp, Upper
Snodsbury, Worcs., at 1.54pm.
One ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On our arrival, the two occupants, a man and a woman, had managed to get themselves out and were sitting away from the helicopter.
“The woman was treated for back and abdominal pain, given pain relief and transported
to Worcester Royal Hospital by land ambulance.
“The man suffered minor bumps and bruises in the incident and was discharged at the scene.
“Given the incident had the potential for a far more serious outcome, it is pleasing that both patients have been incredibly lucky to walk away relatively unhurt.”
