Aurora teen is improving after fall at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on March 23, 2015

A teen that fell nearly 90 feet at Starved Rock State Park is on the mend.

Christopher Stewart is in fair condition as of Monday afternoon at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier says Stewart was trying to break off some ice at the rim of the canyon when he lost his footing. He was flown to Peoria where he had surgery for two broken legs.

One woman with him was arrested for having marijuana and drug paraphernalia while two men with Stewart were said to be “highly intoxicated”.
