A 20-year-old woman survived a fall down a 30-foot high cliff on Sunday evening at Knox Mountain Provincal Park.

The incident occurred at about 7:40 p.m.

The woman involved had been at the look out area with two friends where all were sitting on some rocks on the hillside.

The three were leaving the area when the victim realized she had left her cell phone where they had been sitting and went back to retrieve it.

When she did not rejoin her friends, they went back to the area and found the victim at the bottom of the cliff near some trees.

Fortunately, she was conscious and did not appear seriously injured, however, she could not help herself and had to be extracted by members of the Kelowna Fire Department’s High Angle Rescue team.

She was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Police say there was evidence of alcohol consumption which may have been a contributing factor.
