A WOMAN ‘incredibly’ escaped injury after her car overturned leaving her suspended in the air by her seat belt.

Paramedics, the air ambulance and firefighters were called to Billesley Road in Billesley at around 1pm on Tuesday (February 7) to rescue the woman, who is believed to be in her 40s.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews discovered a woman who was suspended in the air by the seat belt after her car had left the road and overturned, eventually coming to rest against a tree.

“Ambulance staff worked closely with the fire service to safely lower the woman and help her get out of the car.

“She was then assessed by crews but incredibly found to have avoided any injuries which given the damage suffered to the car and the position it has come to rest in, is extremely lucky. The woman was discharged at the scene.”
