A Bazetta woman was taken to the hospital by helicopter after being thrown from a horse.

The 70-year-old woman was riding a horse on the trails at Mosquito Lake when she fell from the animal. The Bazetta Fire Department, along with help from Mecca, pulled the woman from the woods of the trail off of Hoagland-Blackstub Road around 1:30 p.m on Saturday. She was flown to St. Elizabeth’s Health Center, in stable condition.

“It was unknown if she had a medical emergency prior to the fall. It was at least an hour, hour and a half extrication time, that’s why the helicopter was called in, for trauma purposes and neurological injuries,” said Dave Walter, Acting Supervisor, Bazetta Twp. Fire Department.

The horse she was riding was corralled and returned to the farm.
