Suburban man falls nearly 40 feet at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on July 27, 2015

An Oswego man was flown to Peoria after falling about 30 feet and tumbling another 10 feet Monday morning at Starved Rock State Park.

The fall happened at Aurora Canyon right at 10 o’clock. A landing area was set up for the Lifeflight helicopter outside Utica Village Hall.

Conservation Police haven’t released the name yet of the fall victim. Sgt. Hank Frazier did say the man was ticketed for being off the designated trails.
