Paramedics help pensioner trapped under bus

This was the dramatic scene witnessed by shoppers in one of Newcastle's busiest streets after a pensioner was dragged under the wheels of a bus.

The 80-year-old woman was taken to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary after suffering serious injuries to her head, leg, foot and shoulder.

The accident happened earlier this month (April) on Pilgrim Street, at the junction with New Bridge Street.

NEAS, police, and fire services worked together to get the trapped elderly woman out from under the vehicle.

Parts of Pilgrim street were cordoned off and the road was closed between Market Street and New Bridge Street while accident investigators were at the scene.
