Man ‘with broken bones’ after car park fall
AN air ambulance was mobilised after a man was left with ‘broken bones’ having fallen from a town centre car park.
Police said an area around the Accrington Arndale car park by Eastgate was blocked off while an air ambulance arrived to treat a man who was injured after falling from one of its floors.
The man, understood to be aged in his 50s, was thought to have suffered broken bones as a result of the incident on Thursday afternoon, September 28.
Police confirmed he has been airlifted to Royal Preston Hospital with leg injuries, hip injuries and facial injuries, and is ‘seriously injured’.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “We were called at about 12.40pm.
“Ambulance and police were called. It appears he has not come from the top of the building.”
