Units responded for an adult female that had fallen from the rocks in Scott’s Run Park in the McLean area of Fairfax County at approximately 11:20 a.m., September 20.
The area where the woman had fallen was in a remote section of the park. Crews hiked into the area and began treatment for her injuries. Firefighters then secured the patient in a rescue basket and utilized the U.S. Park Police helicopter to hoist the woman from the cliff side and transported her to the hospital for further treatment.
One additional individual was transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
