Yesterday afternoon, medics from the Great North Air Ambulance were called into action when a ten-year-old boy injured his back in a Stockton school.
The crew were called out at 1pm to the Tilery area and flew to the scene in the Guardian of the North helicopter.
On scene, the charity’s doctor and paramedic team worked alongside medics from the North East Ambulance Service.
The boy was able to be transported by road, with the GNAAS team accompanying him on the journey.
He arrived at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough in a stable condition with non-life-threatening back injuries.
