Posted by wlpo on April 27, 2015

A teenage girl from Naperville was critically injured after falling from a ledge at Starved Rock State Park.

The 19-year-old was flown to St. Anthony’s in Rockford after falling about 25 feet Sunday afternoon near the entrance to Wildcat Canyon. She was conscious but unable to move when paramedics from Utica arrived.

Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier isn’t releasing her name. He says the fall victim along with two other teens with her from Naperville and Aurora were given tickets for being in restricted areas.
