Woman Rescued After Fall Near GW Parkway

Second overlook on the GW Parkway (photo via Google Maps)Arlington County firefighters helped to rescue a woman who fell 20 feet near the second overlook on the GW Parkway.

The incident happened around 3:00 on Sunday afternoon. It’s unclear where exactly the woman fell, though there is a trail near the overlook.

The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries from the fall, according to ACFD spokeswoman Lt. Sarah Marchegiani, but the terrain made it difficult to get her to an ambulance. Instead, a technical rescue team was called to the scene and managed to lower her to a waiting D.C. fire boat.

The woman was transported to George Washington University Hospital. No additional information was available about the incident.
