A child bending down to pick up a stone while posing for a family photograph plunged 80 feet off a ledge at a park but survived in serious condition, authorities said.
Amy Michelle Walker, 2, of Lyons suffered a head injury and a broken nose as a result of her fall at Silver Falls State Park, authorities said."The doctor said she is doing good. It's nothing she's not going to recover from," said state police Sgt. Randy Westbrook.
The girl bent down to pick up a stone while posing for a picture but lost her footing and fell from a trail at the park's South Falls shortly after noon Sunday, said Westbrook.
She slid and tumbled the first 40 feet down the steep incline, then fell through the air to a creek bank below, Westbrook said.
