He said: "I saw the air ambulance in the field, it was quite scary really.
"I have just moved from Oak Tree to here because it is a quiet area.

A spokeswoman from East Midlands Ambulance (EMAS) service said: "We received a call at 9.35am today to a private address in Mansfield. The caller reported a person had collapsed. We sent two paramedics in two ambulance cars, a crewed ambulance and the air ambulance.
