A man has suffered a very serious head injury after falling about 3 metres onto concrete whilst working on fitting out a building.

It happened at a property on Tyburn Road in Birmingham at around 2.50pm on Wednesday afternoon.

An ambulance was on scene within seven minutes and was backed up by a second ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a Trauma doctor on board.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a man who had serious head and chest injuries.

“Due to his condition, the doctor from the air ambulance decided to anaesthetise him at the scene before he was taken on blue lights by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.”
