A 22-year-old woman riding a horse in a Glenorie private property has fallen from her animal.
She was trampled by the horse and sustained chest injuries.
CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance at 1:00pm and landed in a neighbouring property 20 minutes later. The aeromedical team were the first emergency services personnel to arrive at the scene of the incident.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the woman, including an ultrasound to evaluate her internal injuries, and administered pain relief. Paramedics from NSW Ambulance and NSW Police later arrived and provided additional assistance.
The woman was taken by road in a stable condition with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital under ongoing observation from CareFlight’s clinical team.
