JOPLIN, Mo. — A water rescue today on Shoal Creek in south Joplin.
Emergency responders were called to the area of Mother Nature’s Crack.
A woman had fallen off the cliff, sustaining injuries that prevented her from leaving the woods.
Since access to the area is limited, the Joplin Firefighters used a rope system to move her to the creek bank.
The Joplin Fire Department Water Rescue Team then brought her out by boat to a Newton County ambulance, which transported her to the hospital.
Her injuries are not believed to be serious.
