Woman Rescued After Fall In Rocky Mountain National Park

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — A 56-year-old woman has suffered multiple injuries when she tumbled down a snowfield in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park officials say the woman fell Sunday near Chasm Lake, partway up Longs Peak.

Her name, condition and hometown haven’t been released.

Park officials say the woman fell about 65 feet. A park search and rescue team put her in a litter and moved her to a meadow, where a helicopter picked her up and flew her to a Denver-area hospital.
