No wonder they're always campaigning for funds.. A sprained ankle .. It's hardly life threatening!

Meanwhile, in another part of the county, someone else could have been in real and urgent need of the helicopter ........ that woman should be ashamed of herself!

She didn't ask for the air ambulance. Someone made the decision to send it.
Perhaps the initial information dictated a more serious incident.
There must be reasons why a land ambulance wasn't used and why she was taken by the air ambulance.
Come on Echo, a bit of investigative journalism and you could have the whole story.

Once again Bournemouth Echo have released an incorrect story. Get your facts right before you publish such reports and then the public won't jump to the wrong conclusions
