Worrying Scenes As Air Ambulance Forced To Land On Pitch

An air ambulance had to land on the pitch at Chesterfield vs Lincoln after a fan collapsed in the stand. Players from both sides were taken off the playing surface for 30 minutes and the person in question received emergency medical treatment, to which it was later confirmed they had responded well.

The League Two clash was stopped in the 26th minute when the referee was alerted to someone in need of treatment in the East Stand. It is thought that the supporter in question is a Chesterfield fan. Covers were put up around the unwell fan in the East Stand at Chesterfield vs Lincoln.

Lincoln shared a touching video of fans clapping when the helicopter was attending to the unwell fan on Twitter. They posted: “Superb levels of respect shown by both sets of supporters as the Air Ambulance departs the Proact Stadium. Our thoughts are with the supporter involved and their family. We wish them well.”
