Two Injured In Fall At Patapsco

From the Associated Press via WJZ's Web site:

Fire officials say a couple was seriously injured when they fell about 50 feet from a rock outcropping at Patapsco Valley State Park.

The incident occurred about 8 p.m. Monday, according to Fire Department spokeswoman Elise Armacost. The couple was sitting on the outcropping in a remote area of the park overlooking the Patapsco River, Armacost said, when the woman stood up, slipped, and her male companion grabbed her. They both fell about 50 feet.

A team of doctors from Shock Trauma was flown to the scene and treated the couple. The victims were flown to Shock Trauma in critical condition, Armacost says.
