Woman Rescued from Niagara Gorge | News
NIAGARA FALLS, ONT. - Canadian first responders plucked a woman from the Niagara Gorge early Friday morning.
Niagara Regional Police Service tells 2 On Your Side's Jim Herr that the woman fell about 30-feet into the gorge.
The incident happened around 3:30 a.m. along the 4000 block of River Road near Glenview Avenue.
The 38-year-old woman landed in some brush and appears to have escaped any serious injury.
She was located using thermal imaging equipment.
A firefighter was lowered down to the woman using a fire department ladder truck. The ladder was then lifted and pulled both the firefighter and woman out.
She was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
Police say the woman may have had an argument with her boyfriend in the minutes leading up to her falling into the gorge, but they do not expect foul play.
