A man was taken to hospital in a critical condition after falling from a roof and ‘impaling himself on a camping deck chair’ in Bury St Edmunds.

Paramedics, the air ambulance, police and the fire service were called last night to Church Row to reports that a man, aged in his 40s, had fallen from a roof.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended at about 8.14pm and the man was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital ‘in a critical condition with a serious chest injury’.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said they were called at about 8.40pm and the man had ‘impaled himself on a camping deck chair’.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance arrived at the scene at 8.36pm and landed in St Andrew’s car park.

A spokesman said: “The patient is said to be in a serious but stable condition.”
