A woman has suffered fractures to both her legs after falling from a fourth floor balcony in St Marys today.

The woman in her 50s fell from the residential balcony in Phillip Street around 9am this morning.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance and landed at Bennett Park near the incident.

“NSW Ambulance paramedics worked alongside CareFlight’s medical team to treat the woman,” a CareFlight spokesperson said.

“CareFlight’s specialist doctor and a NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment, ultrasound and treated the woman for injuries including fractures to both legs.”

The woman also suffered head injuries.

The woman was taken by road ambulance to Westmead Hospital, in a stable condition, receiving ongoing treatment from CareFlight’s specialist doctor.

“This patient was in significant pain when we arrived having suffered open compound fractures to both her ankles and upper leg as well as a suspected head injury,” NSW Ambulance Inspector Emily Stevens said.

“We stabilised the patient on scene before she was transported to Westmead in a serious but stable condition.”
