A jogger has been brought to safety after falling down a steep slope in Sedgley this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a pathway near Northway, at just after 6.30pm.
An ambulance together with the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and a community paramedic attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews responded to Sedgley following reports of a jogger falling 2 metres down a steep slope.
“A woman, believed to be 17 years old, was treated for neck and back injuries. She had fallen down a slope and out of sight of the main pathway. The patient eventually used her mobile phone to alert a friend who called the emergency services.
“The HART team and ambulance crews brought the woman to safety using a specialist stretcher.
“The patient was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and given pain relief before she was taken by land ambulance to New Cross Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
