Tuesday, July 17, 2018, 4:53 PM - A 67-year-old woman visiting the Jersey Shore from London, UK was impaled by a beach umbrella Monday afternoon.

Margaret Reynolds' ankle was pierced after a strong gust of wind tossed the umbrella through the air.

A fire crew had to use a bolt cutter to free the woman. She then transported to the hospital in an ambulance.

"It was a beautiful day and a gust of wind blew the umbrella. It was just an accident," Reynolds said in a statement released by Hackensack Meridian Health Tuesday.

She is said to be in good condition.
