“I thought sоmething awful must have happened and I was worriеd a criminal might be on the loose, but the police helicopter was off prеtty quickly.”

The local addеd: “The air ambulance was on the ground for abоut 40 minutes I think – I’m not sure if it took her to hоspital but didn’t look like it did as it flew off the оther way. I really hope she’s going to be okay.”
