Woman Falls At Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on March 27, 2010

A 20 year old woman from Orland Park is in critical condition after falling last night at Starved Rock.

Cori Winchel was lifeflighted to St. Francis Medical Center after falling 25 to 30 feet from Wildcat Canyon.  Utica Fire Chief Dave Edgcomb says his department treated Winchel at the scene before Ottawa River Rescue took her across the Illinois River to be picked up by a helicopter.  Edgcomb believes she suffered a skull fracture.

Three others were in Winchel’s group.  They’re all from the Chicago area and were all ticketed for unlawful entry to a restricted area.
