CAMANO ISLAND – A 15-year-old girl fell 70-feet down a cliff at Camano Island State Park this morning.
The girl was walking with her mom and brother at the park. She and her brother walked ahead and stopped at an overlook, thinking it was a shortcut to the beach below, park spokeswoman Sandy Mealing said.
The girl lost her footing and fell. The tree branch she grabbed broke, and she tumbled straight down a 50-foot cliff, hit the ground and fell another 20 feet to a private beach below, Mealing said.
Firefighters were able to reach the girl. She was taken by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Her condition was not known.
