A man has been rushed to a major trauma centre after he fell and injured himself at a Holloway Road building site.
The London Ambulance Service (LAS) was called at about 4.15pm to reports of a man injured in Holloway Road, near Upper Holloway railway station.
An LAS spokesperson said: “We dispatched an advanced paramedic practitioner, two ambulance crews, an incident response officer and a medic in a car, with the first of our medics arriving within four minutes. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance.”
“We assessed a man at the scene and took him to a major trauma centre.”
Nasreen Halim, who witnessed the aftermath of the incident, told the Gazette: “When I was driving past the building site I saw them bringing a guy out on the stretcher. He was wrapped up in blankets and wasn’t moving. He didn’t look good. All the builders were standing around.”
