A woman and a teenage boy have died and a man has been seriously injured after all three received stab wounds this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Greyhound Lane in Norton, Stourbridge, at 8.01am today (Thursday).

The Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Staffordshire were sent to the scene along with two land ambulances, two MERIT trauma doctors, two senior paramedic officers, a paramedic area support officer and a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Ambulance staff arrived on scene to find three seriously injured patients; a woman, a man and a boy.

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of ambulance staff it became apparent at the scene that nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed deceased.

“The teenage boy was found to be in cardiac arrest and received specialist trauma care and advanced life support from our staff. He was taken on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with treatment continuing en-route.

“Sadly, shortly after arrival in A&E and despite the best efforts of ambulance staff and hospital medics, nothing could not be saved and he was also confirmed dead.

“The man, who was conscious, was also in a serious condition as a result of his stab wounds and was alerted in to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham by land ambulance.”
