A woman suffered a broken arm when she fell about 10 feet through an open trap door while shopping in a store in downtown Victoria on Saturday evening.
Eleven Victoria firefighters responded to the incident, at Rexall Pharmacy at 912 Douglas St., and rescued the woman using a rope. Members of the technical rescue team set up a tripod and lowered three firefighters into the hole.
The woman was raised to the main floor and was treated by B.C. Ambulance paramedics.
