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.
