Brake lever embedded in boy's leg in Wickhamford
A teenage cyclist was airlifted to hospital after getting a brake lever lodged in his thigh.
The boy had come off his bike in woods in Wickhamford near Evesham in Worcestershire on Thursday afternoon.
Emergency crews walked about half a mile to reach the boy before cutting the lever from the bike.
With the lever still embedded in his leg, the boy was carried through the woods on a stretcher and then airlifted to hospital.
Watch commander Russell Broadbent from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: "This must have been a frightening ordeal for the lad, but he was extremely calm and brave throughout, despite having to wait some time for emergency services staff to reach him on foot."
