Falling window hits pedestrian

The BBC reports that a woman has been hit by a window from a hospital building, during high winds.

The window is said to have fallen five storeys from London Bridge’s outpatient hospital in Emblem House, Tooley Street, at about 09:25 BST.

The woman, thought to be in her 20s, suffered a non-life-threatening head injury, the Met Police said.

A witness, who was on a passing bus at the time, said the woman was hit by the whole window frame. The Health and Safety Executive has been informed.

“She went down and was motionless on the pavement but the bus I was on then started to move and I didn’t see if she got up,” the eyewitness said.

The BBC reports that the woman was taken to the Royal London Hospital for treatment.
