Hiker okay after fall at park

Posted by wlpo on June 22, 2014

Emergency responders have some tricky places to get to in Starved Rock State Park. Yesterday afternoon, it appeared they might have to work in the park canyons…however, it wasn’t to be.

Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown said they got the call about 4:15pm about an injured hiker. Brown said his men went to Illinois canyon but found no one. Next they went to Wildcat Canyon, about a mile and a half east of the Visitors Center. It’s there they found a hiker who had earlier slipped down under the falls. The 30-year old man from the Kankakee area declined medical treatment.
