Firefighters have rescued a man who was trapped under a heavy printer in Melksham.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Sandridge Road shortly before 12pm today (12 June).
Travelling in a temporary red helicopter, critical care medics from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance – based out of Thruxton Aerodrome – landed in King George V Park.
The charity’s usual yellow and green helicopter is currently offline, as it undergoes maintenance.
Fire crews from Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon were sent to the incident, where a heavy printer fell onto a man’s legs, trapping him beneath.
A spokesperson for Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters “used airbags to lift the machine”, allowing the man to be freed and taken to hospital.
The injured casualty was airlifted to Wiltshire’s closest major trauma centre – Southmead Hospital in Bristol.
