Youth Injured After Falling Over Cliff In Glace Bay
A teenage girl suffered non-life threatening injuries after falling about 60 feet over a cliff in Glace Bay last night. The girl had been walking with a friend in the hub area after leaving a dance, and her companion notified authorities when the accident occurred. Police and fire fighters responded to the scene a little after 10 pm, and the Glace Bay Fire Department was able to lower a stretcher over the cliff and bring the youth to safety. She was brought to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital with a broken femur, and was subsequently transferred to Halifax for further treatment.
