Spectator flown to Nobles by helicopter after collapsing

A French visitor had to be taken to hospital by helicopter yesterday (Mon) after collapsing whilst watching the races.

The man had been at Cronk y Voddy when he was discovered unconscious in a field which is used by spectators.

He was discovered shortly before the roads opened at the end of the days racing and an ambulance also arrived at the scene as the Isle of Man ambulance helicopter, charted by the service through the TT period, touched down in the field alongside the Cronk y Voddy straight

After receiving treatment at the scene for around half an hour, he was flown to Nobles.

His condition today is described as "very poorly"
