FIREFIGHTERS from Ipswich rescued a woman with spinal injuries by lifting her on a stretcher though her first-floor window.

The 21-year-old, who lives in The Street, Bramfield, fell from her loft hatch just before 7pm on Saturday.

Paramedics wanted to keep her horizontal on a spinal board, so fire crews lifted her through a window rather than down the stairs.

She was placed on a hydraulic platform and lowered to the ground.
