A woman was airlifted to hospital after sustaining a spinal injury at Glastonbury Festival earlier today (June 28).

The unnamed woman was flown from the site in Somerset to Southmead Hospital in Bristol, reports BBC News. It is not yet known how the woman received the injury.

The incident follows the death of a man that police suspect took Class-B drug ketamine on the first night of the festival (June 25). He was taken to a nearby hospital and died the following night.

So far there have been two deaths at Glastonbury 2014. A 67-year-old woman also died of natural causes on the first night of the festival (June 25). Her death is not being treated as suspicious and the police believe she may have had an underlying medical condition.
