Dookie police Sergeant Dale Potter said a woman, 41, was on an elevated verandah on a Katandra West property when part of it collapsed underneath her at 8.40pm.

‘‘One leg fell into the hole, she was trapped for a period of time and she was eventually freed by emergency services,’’ Sgt Potter said.

‘‘She was in a fair bit of pain and paramedics treated her once she was extracted. It’s no-one’s fault, she’s just stood on a weak plank and fallen through.’’

The woman was taken to Shepparton’s Goulburn Valley Base Hospital with a possible broken hip.

Police, paramedics and the fire brigade attended the scene.
