DANIELSON — Police said a 37-year-old male was injured at Ross’s Cliffs at Old Furnace State Park after falling from a cliff Sunday afternoon.
State police said the man fell approximately 100 from the cliffs. The incident occurred around 3:20 p.m., and the man is conscious. According to South Killingly Fire Department, the victim was taken to a Rhode Island Hospital by LifeStar.
Meanwhile, at Enders State Forest in Granby Sunday afternoon, Alana Kreiger, 26, of Orange, fell from a trail at the falls, according to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
First-responders helped her to the parking area, where she was evaluated by paramedics on scene but refused transport by an ambulance. Kreiger was taken instead by a friend to Hartford Hospital with minor injuries. Police are investigating.
The Kreiger is not the first to have fallen near the waterfalls. A University of Hartford student was seriously injured when he fell this month. He remains in critical condition 10 days after that fall.
