A WOMAN is hurt but in a stable condition after her fingers became trapped in a treadmill.
Emergency crews were called to a Tyres Street address in Hamilton just after 2pm, where the careful extraction of the patient's hand from the sporting equipment was undertaken.
Hamilton CFA captain Malcolm Anderson said the woman appeared to have been trying to move the treadmill when her fingers became stuck.
"We had all services on scene, ambulance, SES and the Hamilton brigade, and worked together to extract the woman's hand from the sporting equipment," he said.
"It appears the woman was trying to relocate the piece of equipment when she became stuck.
"The extraction took about 10-15 minutes once we assessed the situation, it was't super difficult. We all worked together to look after the patient and make the extraction."
The woman, in her fifties, was taken to Hamilton Base Hospital via road ambulance in a stable condition.
"She had a few fingers stuck in the treadmill and was in quite a bit of pain," an Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman said.
The doctor who oversaw the patient's treatment said she was treated for minor injuries and allowed to return home.
