An 18-year-old woman has been airlifted to hospital after she was thrown from her horse in South Bowenfels, near Lithgow, at a private residence.

The woman sustained fractures to her pelvis and lower limbs.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked shortly before 5:10pm from CareFlight’s Westmead hangar and landed 25 minutes later at the scene of the incident in a South Bowenfels paddock where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.

CareFlight’s clinical team assessed the patient and treated her for fractures before flight transfer.

The woman was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition under ongoing observation from CareFlight’s clinical team.
