BROOKVILLE — A woman was injured Tuesday after falling inside the Jefferson County Courthouse.

The employee suffered a cut to an artery on her arm, resulting from a dish she was carrying, District Court administrator Chad Weaver said.

Judge John Foradora applied a homemade tourniquet moments after the incident.

Emergency personnel arrived shortly thereafter and took the woman to DuBois Regional Medical Center.

The woman was resting comfortably as of Wednesday morning, Weaver said.
