Naperville woman falls 25 feet from cliff at Starved Rock State Park
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — A woman from Naperville is in critical condition after climbing where she wasn’t supposed to be, at Starved Rock State Park.
The 19-year-old woman and two friends left a marked climbing trail Sunday and climbed a cliff in a restricted area.
When she reached a ledge, she slipped on the sandstone and fell 25 feet down a canyon wall.
She was conscious and alert as she was loaded onto a med-evac helicopter.
Her companions were ticketed for unlawful entry in a restricted zone.
