MARYLAND -

A spokeswoman for Ocean City, Maryland says a woman has been accidentally impaled in the chest by a beach umbrella.

According to spokeswoman Jessica Waters, the incident happened Sunday afternoon on the beach.

Waters says the 54-year-old woman was conscious, but her condition wasn't known at the time.

Waters says a Maryland State Police helicopter took the woman for medical care.

A woman was impaled last week by a beach umbrella in Seaside Heights.

Authorities said part of the umbrella pierced the woman's ankle after being driven along by the force of the wind.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
