Baltimore County, Maryland – A 27-year-old woman was flown to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries today after a concrete porch in Gwynn Oak collapsed from under her and she fell 10 feet into a confined space.
BCoFD tactical rescue units were called to the 3500 block of Venetian Rd., 21207, at 3:09 p.m. The patient was conscious and alert in a void space beneath the collapsed porch, but she was trapped by a slab of concrete. It took specialized tactical rescue units from the Texas Fire Station and Pikesville Volunteer Fire Co. about an hour to free her, according to the report.
The woman was able to climb a ladder to safety and suffered non-life threatening injuries. Because of the high-risk nature of this call, she was flown by MSP Aviation to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
