Family Rescued From Cliff at Brandywine Falls
Two sisters were “waterfall walking” with their five children along a steep hill at Brandywine Falls, when they began having difficulty with the climb, Fox 8’s Jack Shea reports. Two of the older children managed to get to a safe area, but the sisters and their three younger children became stranded and called for help.
National Park Rangers, the Northfield Fire Department and the Valley Fire Department used rope to pull them to safety just after 5 p.m. No one was injured.
In a news release Sunday evening, the National Park Service reminded visitors to use caution when hiking around the Brandywine Falls, and to respect the closures and signs around the area.
