Tourist Hiking in Yosemite Survives Plunge
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (AP) -- Officials say a woman hiking above Upper Yosemite Fall in Yosemite National Park this weekend survived a nearly 25-feet plunge, landing on a granite slab and suffering a major pelvic injury that prevented her from walking. Authorities tell the San Francisco Chronicle a park service rescue team responded Saturday afternoon to the woman, identified as a 28-year-old from the Netherlands. The woman was about 100 yards from the trail and just above where Yosemite Creek drops 1,400 feet.
