Woman flown to hospital after plunge at waterfall in park

Authorities say a woman was rescued but seriously injured after a fall at a western Pennsylvania waterfall.

A ranger at McConnells Mill State Park in Slippery Rock Township said the woman was apparently trying to take pictures at the top of Kildoo Falls when she slipped and fell about 30 feet.

Emergency responders called to the Lawrence County park at about 7:20 p.m. Sunday rappelled down about 60 feet to reach the victim and get her back up the hill.

She was flown to a hospital with what were described as "very serious" injuries. Rangers urged visitors to stay on marked trails while in the park.
