Concrete Wall Falls On Gold Coast Woman In Freak Accident

A woman has been seriously injured after a concrete wall fell on her overnight.

In what has been described as a freak accident, the wall of a Surfers Paradise car park gave way, crushing the 23-year-old.

According to the Gold Coast Bulletin, a man she was with jumped up onto the wall when it collapsed.

An ambulance spokesman said she had back injuries and “no feeling in her legs”.

A local living nearby says he heard her screams when the wall fell.

“I was laying in bed and heard a girl yell ‘get it off me, get it off me’,” he told Nine News.

“I knew it was bad so I jumped up, got dressed and raced across her and by the time I got across here the block was off her and she was laying in the corner in a real bad way.”

It is believed the pair are tourists with the woman currently being treated at Gold Coast University Hospital.
