A man fell down to earth with a bump during an incident in the Black Country today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a man who had fallen through some floorboards in a disused shop on the Stourbridge Road in Lye shortly before 12.55pm this afternoon.

An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle were dispatched to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a man who had fallen approximately six feet through the floor into the cellar below.

“Due to the location of the incident, ambulance crews had to gain access to the man via the neighboring shop’s cellar. Fortunately, the man who was a little shocked following the incident hadn’t sustained any serious injuries in the fall. He was treated at the scene for a minor head and arm injury before being conveyed to Russell Hall Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
