A woman was left with serious injuries after being trapped under a sofa allegedly thrown from a property.
Edita Butkeviciut was on a break from the nail bar where she works when the couch fell, knocking her out and leaving her trapped for 40 minutes.
The incident happened just off Union Street at around 1.20pm on December 7.
It is believed that the sofa fell from a roof immediately above Ms Butkeviciut.
After hearing Ms Butkeviciut’s calls for help, a passer-by ran to her aid.
The 30-year-old was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where she underwent surgery for multiple broken bones including a fractured spine, ankle and thigh.
Two men have been charged in connection with the incident.
Doctors have told Edita she will be in hospital over Christmas and will not be able to return home for seven weeks, after undergoing further treatment and surgery.
Ms Butkeviciut had been on the phone to partner Daniel Ferreria when the couch fell on her – cutting the line dead.
He only found out what happened after receiving a call from her work about an hour later.
He told the Evening Express: “It has been a crazy few days.
“The doctors have been unbelievably good to her, they said Edita is lucky to be alive.”
A police spokesman said: “Police in Aberdeen have charged two men aged 31 and 26 after a 30-year-old woman was injured by a sofa that was allegedly thrown from a building in the city centre area on December 7.
“A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.”
