Newspapers are reporting that an air ambulance was ordered off the estate of a a billionaire sheikh after landing there to rescue an unconscious horse rider.

According to the Mail on Sunday, “the crew were told they had to take off and reland somewhere else — resulting in a 20-minute delay in reaching the unconscious woman, who had fallen off and landed on her head. The woman was already being attended to by paramedics on the ground before being airlifted to hospital…. She has since been discharged.”

“The Sheikh’s head of security told the paper that the helicopter shouldn’t be allowed to just fly in like that, as they should have notified the sheikh first.”
