A woman who fell from a considerable height at a North Carolina state park is being treated for her injuries at a hospital, a state parks spokeswoman said.

The woman in her 60s from the Charlotte area slipped and fell “a considerable distance” while hiking at Pilot Mountain State Park northwest of Winston-Salem Sunday, according to state parks spokeswoman Katie Hall.

Hall said that the woman had a pulse when she was taken to the hospital but that she didn’t know more about her condition.
