Highland Park teen listed in good condition after Starved Rock fall

Posted by wlpo on September 24, 2015

A teenager that fell nearly 30 feet at Starved Rock State Park is on the mend.

Eighteen-year-old Noah Schwartz of Highland Park is said to be in good condition at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. He was flown there yesterday morning after falling near the Lover’s Leap.

He’s accused of climbing over a fence and going off the beaten path before falling. Schwartz was able to crawl back up to a deck where Utica paramedics took him to a Life flight helicopter.

He will be ticketed for hiking in a restricted area.
