A San Diego woman has been hospitalized for injuries sustained when a slip in the shower sent her plunging out her apartment window to the bottom of a light shaft.

The woman, in her 50s, "tumbled through a 2-by-3-foot opening next to her bathtub and into the shaft, an old-fashioned construction feature designed to bring daylight into rooms, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Maurice Luque said," according to Fox5 San Diego.

The woman was found by rescue personnel at the bottom of the shaft; she'd remained conscious throughout the entire episode. She was taken to UCSD Medical Center for treatment for her "minor to moderately serious injuries."
