An air ambulance was called after two young girls were involved in a “freak” accident while competing at a show with their ponies.
It is understood the girls were injured at Kirriemuir and District Agricultural Show on Saturday when the animals became spooked.
It was decided to call the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance.
The girls were checked over by the crew after the incident before they were taken to Ninewells Hospital by road.
Show secretary Lizzie Baxter said that the girls – whose ages have not been revealed – required treatment but they were discharged later the same night.
Ms Baxter said: “This was a freak accident involving two young girls who were competing with their ponies at the show on Saturday.
“At one point the ponies became spooked by something and as a result the two girls were injured.
“The St Andrew’s Ambulance first aiders who were first on the scene were concerned enough to decide that the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance should be called.
“A road ambulance was also alerted. “Fortunately it turns out the girl were not badly injured.”
Meanwhile, coastguards and the RNLI Arbroath inshore lifeboat were called to the aid of a fisherman who had become unwell on Saturday.
A spokesman for HM Coastguard said the incident happened just off the Arbroath coast at Whiting Ness around 9am.
He said: “Arbroath lifeboat volunteers were requested to go to the medical evacuation of a male suffering a suspected heart attack aboard a fishing vessel.
“After an initial assessment aboard the vessel, the casualty was given some treatment by the lifeboat’s casualty carers and transferred to the inshore lifeboat.
“He was transported back to Arbroath harbour and handed over to the Scottish Ambulance Service.”
Also in attendance were Montrose Lifeboat and coastguard units from Arbroath, Carnoustie and Montrose.
