Cornell Student Reported Injured in Fall Creek Gorge
A Cornell student was injured on Saturday in the university's Fall Creek Gorge. The student was reportedly attempting to climb the rocks on the face of the gorge when he slipped and fell about 30 feet, as reported by the Cornell Daily Sun.
The Sun has also reported that the student presented "severe abrasions" as described by Bangs ambulance. The student, whose name was not disclosed by the police department, was airlifted to Guthrie hospital in Pennsylvania, which is equipped to handle severe trauma cases. The student was able to walk to his dormitory after the incident, however, and was in stable condition at the time of the airlift. CUPD has chosen to issue a citation to the injured student as well as his companions in an attempt to show zero-tolerance for rock climbing and gorge jumping.
