The woman was kept unconscious on a ventilator for some time. She didn’t suffer any burns but fractures to the skull and bones in the upper part of her body caused by the five to six meter fall.

The physician, whose name was not mentioned in the article, told Morgunblaðið that the woman has regained consciousness and is little by little regaining her strength. She has been transported from the ICU to the inpatient unit.
