Neighbour finds woman bruised, shaken on floor



A WOMAN spent two days on the floor of her North Rockhampton home before a neighbour found her and called an ambulance yesterday.

The 64-year-old woman looked bruised, shaken and exhausted as ambulance officers escorted her to Rockhampton Hospital yesterday afternoon.

A call was made to 000 from her home at 1.53pm, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson said.

It is believed the call was made by a concerned neighbour who came to see how the woman was, she said.

"An ambulance crew arrived and cancelled back-up because the situation was not as serious as initially believed,'' she said. A few concerned residents watched-on as ambulance officers cared for the woman.

No one wanted to accept the "hero title'' of who called the ambulance to The Morning Bulletin yesterday.

It took an hour to stabilise the woman before she was transported to Rockhampton Hospital.

Last night a Rockhampton Hospital spokesperson said the woman was in a stable condition and recovering from a fall.

"She has facial injuries and possible internal injuries.
