Woman rescued after being trapped under car

An elderly Lanzarote woman had to be rescued by the fire brigade after suffering a freak fall as she walked along a street in the island’s capital.

The 71-year-old tripped and ended up wedged between the kerb and the underside of a parked vehicle on Calle León y Castillo.

Fire fighters were called to hoist the car up so that the woman could be freed. The woman was eventually released, and was taken to hospital for treatment to grazes she sustained during the incident.
