THE Devon Air Ambulance set down on Exmouth beach last Sunday morning after a woman collapsed.

A volunteer lifeguard, who is part of the Exmouth Beach Rescue Club, raised the alarm and helped the lady until she was stabilised by paramedics.

The Air Ambulance crew airlifted the lady to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Rick Walker, a volunteer for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, managed to capture the scene on his camera phone and send the images into the charity.

Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director of Devon Air Ambulance Trust said that their volunteers are ‘an integral part of fundraising’.

“We are always grateful to receive photos such as this, as it enables us to show our supporters and future donors what sort of incidents Devon’s two Air Ambulances attend.”

“If anyone ever takes photos of either of our helicopters we would be delighted to receive them, and if can use them in the future, that really helps.”
