Magpas were called to the scene at Huntingdon Tesco


An eight-month-old baby girl had a seizure outside a Huntingdon supermarket yesterday afternoon (Thursday).

Magpas Helimedix Dr Charles Johnson and paramedic Keir Rutherford were sent to Tesco, in Kings Ripton Road, just before 1.30pm to reports of a very young child having a seizure.

A Magpas spokesman said: “The Magpas team assessed the patient outside the supermarket, while working alongside an ambulance crew and an ambulance officer. Fortunately the baby’s condition wasn’t serious or life-threatening. The Helimedix accompanied the child to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in land ambulance to further investigation, her family were also with her.”
