SEASIDE HEIGHTS -

Police say a London woman was impaled by a beach umbrella at Seaside Heights.

The incident happened Monday afternoon.

According to the Asbury Park Press, Margaret Reynolds, 67, was at the beach when part of the umbrella pierced her right ankle and was driven completely through due to the "force of the wind."

Borough Police Chief Tommy Boyd says fire crews had to use a bolt cutter on the umbrella to free Reynolds and put her in an ambulance.

Authorities have not released further details on how she was injured.

Her current condition has not been released.
