A CYCLIST was airlifted to hospital after skidding on ice and falling from her bike in Henley.
Emergency services – including the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance – were called to Wawensmere Road around 10.50am on Wednesday where the woman had been cycling as part of a group.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews were told the patient – a woman believed to be in her 50s – had fallen after skidding on a patch of ice.
“She was already receiving care and attention from fellow cyclists before ambulance staff took over treatment for a head injury and a suspected wrist injury.
“She was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being carefully moved to the air ambulance, which had landed in a nearby field.”
The woman was then flown to University Hospital in Coventry for further assessment.
