Police and an air ambulance were called after a 54-year-old man suffered a heart attack in Barkway last week.
An ambulance crew, two rapid response vehicles, and an ambulance officer were also dispatched to the incident just before 9am on Tuesday to a house in Townsend Close.
They treated the man, who was then airlifted by the East Anglian Air Ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in a critical condition.
Police have since confirmed that the patient sadly died.
At this stage officers are not treating the man’s death as suspicious and no-one else is being sought in connection with the incident.
