Sandringham: Man Remains In Critical Condition

Police and the Health and Safety Executive are continuing to investigate an incident at Sandringham yesterday, Monday 8 July 2013 in which a man was critically injured.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Lower Lake, close to the B1440 at around 1.30pm following reports of a man being believed to have fallen into the water.

The man in his 30s, who is a worker on the Sandringham Estate, had apparently become trapped underwater by the grass cutter which he was riding.

Two police officers and a colleague from the estate retrieved the man from the water and began CPR before paramedics arrived. It is believed he was underwater for a number of minutes and enquiries to establish exactly how long are ongoing.

The man was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by air ambulance where he remains in a critical condition.

The joint Police and HSE investigation is currently focusing on speaking to eye witnesses and on the technical aspects of the grass cutter.

A number of calls have been received by the Sandringham Estate from members of the public - whilst their concerns are appreciated, no updates will be issued in this way and people are advised to visit the Norfolk Police website
