A 53-year-old woman was flown to Sydney’s Westmead Hospital this morning with a possible head injury after falling from her horse on the city’s northern outskirts.
CareFlight’s rapid response trauma team were called to the semi-rural property in Geelans Road, Arcadia, at 10.25am.
They landed within seven minutes, closely followed by NSW Ambulance paramedics and NSW police.
The woman had been knocked unconscious for a short time and had no memory of the fall. CareFlight’s specialist trauma doctor provided initial treatment to ensure she was in a stable condition.
She was then transferred to the helicopter for the short flight to Westmead for further tests and treatment.
