Still Waters

A British woman has been taken to hospital after being impaled in the leg by a parasol on a beach in the US state of New Jersey.

Margaret Reynolds, 67, from London, was relaxing at Jersey Shore on Monday afternoon when strong winds caused a metal umbrella to pierce her ankle.

The umbrella went entirely through her ankle and first responders had to use a bolt cutter to free her, police say.

Authorities have offered no further details about Ms Reynolds' condition.

A English woman on a Jersey beach. What are the odds? You would think she'd go where there is a better class of people and no sewerage in the water.....

Seaside Heights Piney. That must have been some wind to drive it through her ankle.

Said she was reading a book at the time, I wonder if it was "JAWS."  (Theme from Jaws playing in my head and picturing attack beach umbrellas. )  :o
