US woman survives 60ft cliff plunge

A woman has been badly injured falling about 60 feet down a cliff

A woman has been seriously injured falling about 60 feet down a cliff to the bottom of a waterfall in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.

Fish and Game officials say Jennifer L Tate was hiking with friends when she left them to take a photograph of Cascade Falls. She told rescuers the ground gave way at the edge and she fell down the cliff.

Fire and rescue crews climbed to the top of the waterfall and climbed down to Tate, who was conscious at the bottom.

She was brought up the cliff face and taken to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Centre in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Officials said Tate had broken bones, lacerations and chest pain.
