A local woman in Jerantut, Pahang, found herself getting completely knocked over by a billboard which tore off from its frame and barreled its way towards her.

After getting hit by the billboard, the woman is seen lying on the road as concerned motorists quickly rushed over to check on her.

Jerantut district police chief Superintendent Azman Mat Kamis said in a statement that there were strong winds and heavy rain at the time of the incident, which caused the billboard to fly towards the woman’s direction, reported Berita Harian.

The victim was identified as 57-year-old G Muniammah, who suffered a broken shoulder and injuries to her forehead and eyes.

She was later sent to the Jerantut Hospital for treatment and is reported to be in a stable condition.

Azman added that although Muniammah’s family have lodged a police report, further investigations will not be made into the incident as it was a result of a natural disaster and not a road accident, reported Sinar Harian.
