Woman rescued after slipping at Starved Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on May 24, 2012

Even though it’s been a week without rain, the canyons and trails at Starved Rock State Park are damp, especially near the waterfalls.

A woman walking near Tonti Canyon at Starved Rock Wednesday evening had to be helped out by Utica firefighters and Ottawa River Rescue.  She apparently slipped on a wet rock and was able to call for help using her cell phone.

After directing rescuers to her location, she was carried to the river shore to be taken by boat to an ambulance and then Illinois Valley Community Hospital.  Her name and condition weren’t available yet.
