Ottawa woman hurt after a fall at Buffalo Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on April 29, 2015

Not all falls at state parks involve Starved Rock and someone from the suburbs.

Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier says 21-year-old Brianna Rapp of Ottawa fell 20 feet Tuesday afternoon at Buffalo Rock State Park. She was allegedly climbing a sandstone wall to the west of the parking lot when she slipped and fell. Rapp was taken to OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa.

Matthew Webster of Ottawa was with Rapp and was ticketed for possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia. Frazier says Rapp and Webster would’ve been ticketed for being in a restricted area if not for the signage being stolen.
