A volunteer doctor and paramedic from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service were called, along with a fire crew and ambulance service.
She was rescued by firefighters and a team from the East of England Ambulance service.
The woman was then treated by the SARS team and was later taken by ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with a serious head injury.
