Woman fractures spine at Red Bull Flugtag

The 26-year-old woman was part of a team who made a piano-like flying machine which was pushed off a six metre drop above the Dambovita river running through the Romanian capital.

The woman’s back was severely damaged after the machine failed to fly and plunged into the water. Surgeons say she will need surgery.

This is the third edition of the Red Bull Flugtag competition in Bucharest.
