Woman run over by own car - twice
Paramedics in Australia described a woman as "incredibly lucky" after she was run over by her own car - twice.
The 37-year-old had pulled into the driveway of her Melbourne home and, in her haste, failed to put on the handbrake.
The runaway car knocked the woman to the ground and ran over her abdomen and legs, reports the Melbourne Age.
As she lay injured on the driveway, the car continued rolling down the incline, hit a fence and rolled back towards her, running her over again.
Paramedic Craig Brooks said the woman was "incredibly lucky" despite the unfortunate chain of events.
"The woman said she couldn't move after being crushed the first time," he said.
"She definitely was fortunate that her injuries, whilst possibly being serious, they could have been much worse."
Intensive care paramedics took the woman to hospital where her condition was described as serious but stable.
