A man is in a serious condition after falling from a flat balcony in the city centre.
The fire, police and ambulance service were called to Granville Street just before 9.55am on Tuesday (July 12) following reports that a male had suffered a fall from a height.
The Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford was also scrambled and landed in the gardens of Park Central flat complex.
The patient received specialist trauma care before he was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The incident is not said to be suspicious.
A spokesman from West Midlands Ambulance said: “We were called to reports of a patient who had fallen from height on Granville Street at 9.53am.
“One ambulance, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.
“On arrival we discovered one male patient, who was in a serious condition.
“He received specialist trauma care at the scene before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham by land ambulance.”
We have contacted West Midlands Police for comment.
A resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “I was outside the flat when I heard fire engine go past.
“About 10 minutes later I saw an air ambulance trying to land outside my flat but landed nearby.
“I went for a walk around then seen and heard what happened. Someone said someone had fallen from height, just hoping the guy is ok.”
