A badly-burned man has died after he panicked and jumped out of an air ambulance taking him to hospital last week, police have revealed.
The helicopter was around six feet off the ground
The helicopter was about six feet off the ground as it made an emergency landing in Weston-super-Mare after the victim started struggling with medics.
The 27-year-old was badly burned after a motorbike he was working on caught fire in his shed in Burtle, Somerset.
He later died at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol from burns injuries.
Sergeant Jon Crispin from Avon and Somerset Police said the man struggled free before the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance touched down, and jumped about six feet on 27 September.
He said: "The patient struggled with the crew for an unknown reason causing the captain to make an emergency landing."
