Hazleton, Luzerne County-First responders in Hazleton spent much of today rescuing a woman who was impaled on a wrought iron fence.

The original 911 call came in as a woman who was stuck in a grate.

But, when emergency crews arrived at The Diamond Avenue Cemetery they realized the situation was much more serious.

The spike had gone through the woman's thigh so firefighters had to remove the fence with her to prevent any further injuries.

The victim was able to flag down a woman and her husband who were driving by and they are the ones who called 911 to get help.
