One dead and one in a serious condition after Cambs skydiving incident
23 September 2012

One man has died and another is in a serious condition after they collided while skydiving yesterday near Peterborough.

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) was called to Sibson at 3.32pm and immediately dispatched two ambulances and a manager to the scene followed by a request for Magpas air ambulance to attend because of the seriousness of the incident.

Despite EEAST and air ambulance crews working hard together to save one man's life he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man, in his late 20s, suffered serious spine and leg injuries and after being treated by EEAST and Magpas crews was flown to Addenbrooke's Hospital. He arrived in a serious but stable condition.

An EEAST spokeswoman said: “All emergency crews worked very hard together to try to save the life of one of the men involved but despite the best efforts of crews he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and loved ones. We wish the second casualty all the best for a good recovery.”

Police also attended. EEAST has no further information about this incident.
