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.”

The spokesman said there was no further information available regarding the man’s condition.
