Prince William helped transport a man who had suffered a cardiac arrest to Papworth Hospital on Sunday.

The Prince was part of the East Anglian Air Ambulance’s Anglia Two team that responded to a call from Royston, south of Cambridge, following reports that a man had gone into cardiac arrest.

After collecting the man, the helicopter landed at King George V playing fields in Papworth, at about 2pm, and the man was taken into hospital for further treatment.

A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “Anglia Two was tasked to Royston to treat a man in his mid-fifties who had suffered a cardiac arrest.

“Dr Akos Soti and critical-care paramedic Jemma Varela treated the patient at the scene before airlifting him to the specialist cardiology centre at Papworth Hospital.”
