Girl Airlifted To Safety After Falling Down Rock Face In Santa Barbara County

Posted on Saturday, July 7, 2012 12:58am


A nine year old girl is recovering from a fractured arm, and other injuries after she tumbled down about 20 feet across the face of a rock in Santa Barbara County’s Cold Springs Canyon.

The girl was hiking with her mother at about five Thursday night when she slipped, and fell.

Her mother used a cell phone to call 9-1-1, and Montecito Fire Department paramedics hiked into the area to help.

The girl started to go into shock, so the paramedics called a Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department helicopter.
She was moved to a clearing, and airlifted to Cottage Hospital, in Santa Barbara.
