Penarth woman thankful after 25 foot fall

Filed under: Air Ambulance Use Stories — Posted by: Mark on February 19, 2012

A woman from Penarth who fell down a 25 foot cliff and was rendered unconscious has heaped praise on both the workmen who initially came to rescue her and the air ambulance who provided her with medical attention.

The 72-year-old Ann Strabel was hiking along the beach, just like any other day, when she fell on to the logs below St Marys Well Bay.

She was crying for help for almost an hour after coming around.

The workmen, who were thankfully in the area finally heard her plea and ran to her side before the air ambulance arrived.

The paramedics believed that there was a possible injury to her neck and so immobilised her immediately before proceeding to airlift her to the Universal Hospital of Wales.

She suffered severe bruising on her neck, shoulders, and back as well as a cut to the head and realises just how lucky she was to survive without further serious injury.

“It was bad luck more than anything I think, and I don’t remember much of what happened. I obviously fell a fair distance and was knocked unconscious. It’s amazing I didn’t break anything. It could have been the shock as much as any pain that caused me to lose consciousness. When I came around I knew I was in trouble. I was in severe pain and all I could do was shout ‘help, help’. Luckily some workmen overheard me and comforted me with blankets until the air ambulance arrived”.
