A woman was rushed to a hospital after being hit by a glass window that fell from a hospital, firefighters in the United Kingdom said.

The woman suffered head injuries after she was hit by the window that fell five floors during a period of high winds.

Witnesses reported hearing a loud crash outside the London Bridge Hospital on Tooley Street around 9:30 a.m. The 25-year-old woman was rushed to the Royal London Hospital for treatment.

A man who was walking about five feet behind the woman, said that the window was pretty large. He heard a crash and saw the window land on the head of the woman.

The man went to help her as she was laying face down on the ground. At first, he thought she was dead. Then he heard her crying.

She had a deep cut across the width of the head.

London Bridge Hospital said it was investigating the incident and was cooperating fully with investigations by the authorities.
