THE Baxter woman pinned against a wall by her car at the Grant Rd storage facility early last week was in “a stable condition” yesterday, Monday.
The 59-year-old staff member was airlifted to The Alfred hospital with serious injuries after being stuck for five hours outside the Somerville business.
Police and emergency services crews stabilised the woman on Monday 4 January before the car could be moved.
The officers then had difficulty evacuating the woman to hospital as locked bollards blocked their way onto Fruitgrowers’ Reserve where the air ambulance was waiting.
A Mornington Peninsula Shire officer arrived with the wrong key and the ambulance officers lifted the woman over the fence on a stretcher and walked to the chopper.
“The shire has always worked closely with the emergency services to provide vehicle access to ambulance helicopter landing sites when requests have been made,” shire infrastructure maintenance manager Niall Mcdonagh said.
“In this case we have not been made aware of any difficulties experienced by the ambulance service.”
It is understood that Somerville CFA has not been given a key by the shire.
