Cornwall Air Ambulance was called into action following reports that a child had been involved in a collision with a car on Henver Road in Newquay.
The crew on board the charity’s helicopter took to the skies following a 999 call for help at 3.07pm on Thursday 26 January. They arrived on scene within minutes where the youngster was being treated by land ambulance crews.
The child required hospital treatment and so was taken on board the air ambulance before being flown to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. The air ambulance then returned to its Newquay airbase.
Each year, Cornwall Air Ambulance carries out around 700 missions throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. As a charity it relies on donations to carry out this lifesaving work. You can find out more about the work of the air ambulance and how to give your support here.
