The East Anglian Air Ambulance landed in Ipswich’s Gippesywk Park this afternoon and a young man in his late teens has been taken to hospital.
Emergency services were called shortly after 3.25pm to a property in the area and the air ambulance was also mobilised.
Doctors from the helicopter treated the teenager and then accompanied him to Ipswich Hospital in a road ambulance.
The helicopter then took off and left the scene.
A spokesman from Suffolk police said they had been called to reports of a medical issue and when they arrived found the teenager unconscious.
