Woman Rescued In Malibu Creek State Park

Posted Jul. 13, 2014, 9:15 am

Staff Report

A 28-year-old Camarillo woman who had been hiking in Malibu Creek State Park was rescued Saturday after she fell on a cliff side, injuring her ankle, authorities said.

Rescuers used a boat to cross a creek, climbed the opposite cliff face and then descended by rope to reach the woman just before 1 p.m., said David Katz, reserve captain with the Sheriff's Malibu Search and Rescue Team.

They lowered the hiker to the creek bed, secured her in a rescue basket and carried her to the boat, which was rowed back across the creek, Katz said.

She was then carried to a waiting ambulance, which took her to her vehicle, he said, adding that she declined to be taken to a hospital.

I feel sad to hear about what had happened. Whenever harm event like this will happen, here's a safety service will help you keep safe. Wherein you can be connected with safety network and if need be, get connected the nearest 911, after you are going to press a panic button.
