She was transferred to the lifeboat by stretcher after her injured limb was immobilised and transported back to Seahouses harbour, to await a road ambulance for the onward journey to the Northumbria Hospital in Cramlington.
Coxswain Craig Pringle said: “This was a fairly straight forward operation for our crew, who train for these scenarios. The casualty was obviously in a lot of pain.
"We wish her well and hope she makes a speedy recovery from her unfortunate accident.”
It was the second call of the day for the crew.
