A 22-year-old woman was being rescued this morning, after she fell about 40-feet while hiking on Granddad's Bluff in La Crosse.

Police Sergeant Randy Rank said the woman was apparently hiking in an unauthorized area. She called 9-1-1 from her cell phone around 7:20 a-m, and rescuers located her about 45 minutes later. Various media reports said the woman had a serious leg injury, and crews had to cut down trees so they could reach her.
