A man in his 50s has been airlifted to hospital in a critical condition after suffering a cardiac arrest at the Stoke Park Asda store in Ipswich.
The East of England Ambulance Service was called just before 10am to the store in Stoke Park Drive, to reports that a man believed to be in his 50s had been suffering from chest pain.
A rapid response vehicle, ambulance crew and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.
But while being treated at the scene the man’s condition deteriorated and went into cardiac arrest.
An ambulance service spokesman said: “Following treatment at the scene, the patient was resuscitated and airlifted to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in a critical condition.”
Eyewitnesses at the scene reported the car park being closed for the air ambulance to land.
Suffolk police officers also attended to assist paramedics.
