Braintree: Woman rescued from maze after falling over and injuring her arm

11:00 20 August 2014

An elderly woman was rescued from a maze in north-east Essex yesterday.


The woman injured her arm after falling over in the maze near Braintree shortly after 2.30pm.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said: “As she was in a maze, it was quite difficult for our crews to transport her out using their normal equipment so we dispatched the hazardous area response team who have a specialist piece of equipment that was used to stretcher the woman out.

“She was then taken to Broomfield Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
