The Austrian oboist Julia Moretti has been helicoptered to hospital in Innsbruck after crashing her quad bike on a mountain. The extent of her injuries has not been made public.

Moretti, 51, has played in Il Giardino Armonico and the Freiburg baroque orchestra.

She is married to the Austrian film star Tobias Moretti.


  • Jeff says:

    If you don’t know the extent of her injuries, how can you say she was badly injured?

    • Maria says:

      She hardly walked away from it, and a very high risk sport on a quad. Wish her well.

      Norman is obsessed with clickbait headlines. He’ll say anything to get your click!

      If a patient requires an air ambulance in the Alpine regions, you can take it that they are badly injured and require urgent treatment
