NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to Westfield Miranda about 11.30am today following reports of a car hanging over a guard rail in one of the car parks.

Paramedics treated a woman in her 40s for shock and chest pain.

She was taken by ambulance to Sutherland Hospital with minor injuries.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan said that facing a potential fall of ten-metres, the woman was very lucky to have only minor injuries.

“NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to a shopping centre at Miranda about 11.30am today following reports of the front wheels of a car hanging over the edge on the third level of the car park,” Mr Buchanan said.

“Three paramedic crews, including Intensive Care Paramedics and Special Operations Paramedics, were on the scene within minutes.

“A 40-year-old woman has been taken to Sutherland Hospital for observation and monitoring with minor injuries from the airbag discharge.

“With a potential fall of ten-metres, this patient is very lucky to have only minor injuries.

“Had the car crashed through the guard rail completely, we could have been looking at a far more serious outcome,” he said.

Access to one of Westfield Miranda's car parks was temporarily closed while the car was being removed from the scene.
