Latest fall victim at Starved Rock improving in Peoria

Posted by wlpo on October 17, 2016

If you’ve been following the story of a woman who survived a 60-foot fall, she is on the mend.

Twenty-one-year-old Kathleen Bartsch of Des Plaines is listed in fair condition at OSF St. Francis Medical Center after being flown to Peoria. Bartsch was hiking near Pontiac Canyon in Starved Rock State Park when she fell in an area where a sign saying “not a trail” had been illegally removed. Because of that Bartsch won’t be ticketed.

Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire says Bartsch has multiple back and internal injuries.
