Cyclist impales thigh on brake lever - and then travels to hospital with it still lodged inside
A WOMAN impaled her thigh on a brake lever when she fell off her bike.
The victim then had to be taken to hospital with the lever still lodged in her thigh because it was too dangerous to have it removed at the scene of the accident in Harecroft Road, Wisbech, a fire service spokesman said.
Fire fighters used cutters to separate the brake lever from the rest of the handlebars so she could then have the lever professionally removed at Peterborough City Hospital.
“Fortunately she didn’t suffer any other injuries from the fall and was in a stable condition,” a spokesman for Magpas said after the incident at 5.31pm on Saturday, August 5.
“The woman was then taken to Peterborough City Hospital by an East of England Ambulance Crew.”
