WATCH: Firefighters launched a high angle rescue Wednesday afternoon after a woman fell from a tree onto a Victoria beach
A witness called first responders at around noon Wednesday after seeing the woman fall from a tree onto a beach on Washington Avenue along the Gorge Waterway.
When firefighters arrived they found the woman incoherent, unresponsive and in considerable pain.
“It was quite a nasty fall out of a tree this young lady had, and we responded and we needed to get her up to the ambulance, we used our ropes and high angle techniques to get her up,” said Victoria Fire Acting Captain John Mokosak.
It’s believed the victim, in her mid 20’s, may have suffered head trauma.
No word on what caused her to fall from the tree or the extent of her injuries.
