A woman was nearly killed by an apparent Viking re-actor after stabbing her with a sword while practicing his movements outside a caravan.
An unnamed woman sustained a life-threatening injury after a Viking re-enactor cut her ‘with a sword’ into her neck.
The part-time Viking is said to have practiced his movements outside his caravan when he stabbed her on the grounds of the Woolpack Inn in Benover, near Maidstone, Kent.
She was rushed to Kings College Hospital in London after an air ambulance arrived on Sunday.

A South East Coast Ambulance Service spokesperson said, “I can confirm that we were called for reports of a woman with serious injuries in a field near Benover Road, Yalding.
Ambulance workers, including paramedics for intensive care, were on site and assisted on site by the air ambulance.
The medical team worked together to provide emergency treatment on site before the patient was taken to Kings College Hospital by road in a life-threatening condition.
“The air ambulance team joined our crews to help the patient on their way to the hospital.”
A woman, who lives nearby, said the neighbors believed the incident occurred when a couple dressed as Vikings.
She added, “The couple lives in a caravan near the pub. The man is a part-time Viking and practiced his movements.
“She was caught with a sword in her neck. She received a blood transfusion on the spot and was then taken to London.
“We wondered why a helicopter had landed. Police and ambulances also arrived.
A Woolpack spokesperson said the incident was an accident and that it was a “private matter” they did not want to discuss.
