A 36-year-old woman sustained possible life-threatening injuries during a sledding incident in Falmouth on Friday afternoon, February 19.

Fire crew members were called at 2:16 PM to a sand pit behind Pitch Pine Lane, where a group of people were sledding, according to Falmouth Deputy Fire Chief Scott Thrasher.

An ambulance was unable to access the woman, as she was far from the road. Crews went in by foot to her while calling for backup. A fire department all-terrain vehicle used Parker Mills Road to get close to the scene, Deputy Chief Thrasher said.

The injured woman was transported to the ambulance on the ATV and brought to Falmouth Hospital, Deputy Chief Thrasher said.

The area is not a common place for sledding, he said.
