Woman Rescued in Boulder After Getting Her Leg Stuck in a Crevice
Talk about a scary moment.
On Monday, May 4, the Boulder County Sheriff's Office responded to a call concerning a woman who was stuck on a rock wall around 8:30 p.m. and could not free herself. She had been there for two hours.
The woman had been climbing near the 30 mile marker of South St. Vrain Drive in Boulder County, Colorado, and as night fell around her, she realized she'd need help if she was going to return home that evening.
According to a press release from the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, "personnel from the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, Lyons Fire Department, Rocky Mountain Rescue, and AMR paramedics" responded to the scene, and were able to free the woman. She was evaluated, and then decided she was well enough to transport herself to the nearest hospital.
