Part of the aluminium umbrella was driven completely through due to the "force of the wind", the Asbury Park Press reported.

A 67-year-old woman visiting from England was impaled by a beach umbrella when a wind gust sent it flying into her ankle on the Jersey Shore, according to a report.

At about 4 p.m., officers responded to a first aid call on the beach at Hiering Avenue in Seaside Heights.

There has been no update on her condition.
