SEATTLE -- A 15-year-old girl is in stable condition after falling from a 15-foot cliff while hiking in Olympic National Park.
The Coast Guard said its crew rescued the hiker Monday afternoon and flew her to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The girl, from Idaho, was visiting the park on a school field trip. She reportedly fell head-first from a cliff north of the Hoh River in Clallam and landed on a beach.
Rescue crews lowered a swimmer to help hoist the teen into a helicopter.
