Police said a drunken woman trying to climb a south Sacramento fence ended up impaled on a steel spike.
Officers responded at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to a residence in the 6800 block of Woodbine Avenue where a woman was screaming.
When they arrived, police found an intoxicated 27-year-old woman impaled through a hamstring by a spike on a security fence.
Officers and civilians held her body up to relieve the pressure on the wound and the pain until firefighters arrived to cut her free of the spike.
She was transported to a hospital for medical treatment.
Police said she had tried to jump the fence to ask somebody for a ride when she came down on the pointed end of the fencing.
