BEREA, Ky. (LEX 18) — A woman has been rescued after falling at Berea Pinnacles in Madison County and spending a frigid night with broken leg.
Authorities say the woman is lucky to be alive after she fell around 6 p.m. Sunday evening, tumbling about 60 feet and breaking her femur.
The woman survived frigid temperatures overnight, and a hiker heard her yelling for help Monday morning.
The woman fell in the area near Indian Fort Mountain Trail.
Officials say the woman is alert but injured.
“It’s too cold and dangerous to hike,” a battalion chief told LEX 18. “Stay safe, stay at home.”
