A woman fell from the top of Ouzel Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park Thursday and emergency responders faced thunderstorms and hail during her rescue.

The victim, a 41-year-old from New York, was with family members at the time of the accident, according to a park news release. She suffered “multiple traumatic injuries.”

Bystanders in the Wild Basin area of the park removed her from a pool of water at the base of the falls and administered aid.

Park search and rescue team members reached the victim at about 3 p.m. and provided advanced medical care on site. She was carried just under 3 miles, in a wheeled litter, to the Wild Basin trail head and then taken by ambulance to the Estes Park Medical Center.
