A two-year-old boy had to be airlifted to hospital after he suffered a seizure at home in Brackley.

On Sunday morning, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) were called out to reports of a two-year old boy who had suffered a seizure at his home.

DLRAA received the call at 11.49am and arrived at the scene of the incident (which cannot be disclosed for legal reasons) at 12.20pm.

The child had been vomiting and not had his usual anti-epileptic medication.

Despite being treated by family members, the seizure did not stop.

A paramedic from East Midlands Ambulance Service provided further anti-seizure medication to help stabilise the patient.

On arrival of DLRAA, the patient was alert and looking around. He was given glucose by a DLRAA doctor as his blood sugar level was low.

He was then airlifted, along with his mother, to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for further treatment by the hospital’s diabetes team.
