A woman has suffered severe head and pelvic injuries after falling from the seawall at California Gap, near Great Yarmouth.
Gorleston Coastguard said she had been walking along a coastal path on Saturday night when she tripped, rolled over 'jagged rocks', and then off a 4ft seawall.
The coastguard was called out shortly before 10.50pm to help carry her from the beach and onto a waiting ambulance.
She was then rushed to the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston.
A spokesman for Gorleston Coastguard said the woman had initially tripped around 10ft up from the seawall, before rolling down an embankment.
