Horses stomp on Lower Austrian woman

A 60-year-old was hospitalised after being trampled down by three horses.

The woman wanted to lead the animals into a barn situated on a paddock near Wiener Neustadt, Lower Austria, yesterday afternoon (Thurs) when they suddenly bolted. She suffered injuries to head and chest.

Only on Tuesday, a 72-year-old care home resident was seriously injured by a bull at a farm in Spitzwiesen, Carinthia. The man was taken to a clinic.
