It was another busy summer weekend at Starved Rock State Park.

Sunday night around 7:30, a woman fell at Wildcat Canyon. Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown says the woman in her 20s was playing in a waterfall when she fell, hurting her ankle. She was off the trail. The woman was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru.

Back on Saturday morning, a man in his 50s broke his hip during a fall at Lover’s Leap. He apparently tripped over a bench. He was on the trails. The man was taken to IVCH in Peru.
