Teen Injured While Swimming In Granby Waterfalls

GRANBY, Conn. (AP) _ Police say emergency crews rescued a 17-year-old girl who was injured while swimming in the waterfalls at Enders State Forest.

WVIT-TV reports that the teen was swimming around 5:30 p.m. Saturday when she fell down 15 to 20 feet onto rocks and was found unconscious, suffering from a head wound.

The station says rescuers had to use ropes and a basket to hoist the girl up the side of the cliff.

Granby police say the girl, who is from Marlborough, was taken to Hartford Hospital in a helicopter. There’s no word on her condition.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is investigating.
