AN AIR ambulance touched down on a Suffolk beach to take a scalded baby to hospital.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance was alerted after a baby boy was injured in Aldeburgh.
Residents in the town say they saw the baby being wrapped in a clingfilm type substance and being taken out of a property opposite fishing huts and into the waiting air ambulance.
The baby was then taken to a specialist burns unit in Norwich accompanied by his mother. It is understood that the family do not live in Aldeburgh.
Tim Daniels, a paramedic, said it was estimated that the baby sustained 20 per cent burns.
He said: “It was an unfortunate incident but the air ambulance was available and hopefully this was a valuable intervention.
