A WOMAN has been flown to hospital with serious injuries after she crashed through a ceiling while working on home repairs west of Tamworth yesterday.
Emergency services were called to a Coonabarabran home late on Monday afternoon after reports a 74-year-old woman had fallen through the roof.
Ambulance paramedics treated the woman at the house for the serious chest injuries she sustained in the incident, before the Westpac Rescue Helicopter landed at the scene.
The chopper's critical care team further helped the woman and stabilised her for transport.
She was flown directly to Tamworth hospital and was reportedly in a serious but stable condition at the time.
