Woman hurt in fall from cliff at Pinnacles Youth Park
COLUMBIA - More than two dozen firefighters rescued a woman from a cliff at Pinnacles Youth Park on Monday. The Boone County Fire Protection District said the woman hurt her lower leg in a "long fall."
Rescuers had to use ropes and a cradle to carry the woman up a steep slope to safety. The fire protection district said the incline and muddy conditions made the work challenging.
First responders just did a drill at the park on Saturday, which helped make the rescue smoother, officials said.
The 20-year-old woman was taken to University Hospital.
