A woman was airlifted to hospital after falling from a window in Stanley Common.

The 50-year-old woman suffered chest injuries after falling about 15 feet from an upstairs window on to a concrete drive on Wednesday (October 23).

The Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) took just six minutes to arrive after they were called to the incident at 2.38pm.

On arrival, a doctor from DLRAA administered pain relief and immobilised the patient.

She was then handed to East Midlands Ambulance Service who transferred her to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.
