A female hiker who fell from a bluff on the Cadron Ridge Trail in Conway Sunday afternoon was transported to Little Rock via Medflight, according to Conway Fire Chief Bart Castleberry.
The woman was with another female as the two hiked the trail above the Arkansas River. Castleberry said the first hiker's foot gave way, and she fell from the bluff into the water on her back. Her friend jumped in after her.
Other hikers who were not with the couple immediately called 9-1-1. Castleberry said the fire department sent its rescue boat out to the woman. One Conway firefighter was able to climb down the bluff and get to the woman and her friend until the boat arrived. Medflight transported her to Little Rock for her injuries.
