A woman was hospitalized after being run over by a lifeguard at a beach in California.

The 26-year-old woman was sunbathing at the Venice Beach on Monday afternoon, when she was struck by a Los Angeles County lifeguard vehicle.

Lorae Bermudez of Whittier, was relaxing near a lifeguard tower with her newlywed husband. About 4:00 p.m., he went into the water while his wife remained on the sand.

The driver of the vehicle apparently did not see her and ran her over. The driver immediately stopped, and called for help while he administered first aid to Bermudez.

She suffered fractures and lacerations to her internal organs, Officer Liliana Preciado said. Bermudez was taken to a hospital for treatment.
