Rescuers called to Starved Rock twice this week

Posted by wlpo on April 1, 2010

          It’s been beautiful weather for hiking at Starved Rock State Park, but you’ve got to be careful.  Members of the Utica Fire Department and other rescuers were called to the park late Thursday afternoon for a 15 year old boy that had fallen at Owl Canyon.

          Conservation Police Sgt. Robert Frazier says the teen’s injuries didn’t appear to be serious.

          It’s the second time rescuers were called to the park this week.  Tuesday evening, a 15 year old Ottawa girl fell while at Lover’s Leap.  Frazier says they think the girl went off the boardwalk and fell.  She was taken to Ottawa Regional Hospital with more serious injuries.

          A woman from the suburbs was flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria after falling in Wildcat Canyon last Friday.
