Colorado Teen Survives 100 Foot Fall From Horsetooth Rock

Rescue personnel have reached an injured Colorado teenage girl who survived a 100 foot fall near Horsetooth Rock.

The 16-year-old was hiking with friends at daybreak when she fell into a crevasse near the main trail of the popular day hike west of Fort Collins. A high-angle ropes rescue was underway at 10 a.m. Monday.

Police say the emergency call came in at approximately 7:25 a.m., and a large search and rescue team was assembled shortly after.

By 11 a.m., the injured teen had been taken off the rock and rescuers were working to bring her to an awaiting air ambulance.

The girl suffered from an open fracture to her ankle and minor head injuries in the fall, emergency personnel said at the scene.

Members of the unidentified girl’s family waited at the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space parking lot while the girl was being rescued and carried off the mountain. They declined to speak to the media.

Poudre Fire Authority is leading the rescue alongside Larimer County Search and Rescue personnel and emergency responders from multiple agencies. An AirLink Helicopter from Medical center of the Rockies is staged in Horsetooth Mountain Open Space to assist with airlifting the girl to the Loveland hospital for further care.

Rescue personnel temporarily shut down a portion of the trail leading up to Horsetooth Rock to keep bystanders from interfering with the ropes rescue operation.

The trail up to Horsetooth Rock is a 2.5 mile trail that climbs from 5,755 feet to 7,255 feet. The hike is considered to be moderately difficult and requires some rock scrambling at the top, and is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Northern Colorado. The trail is part of Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a 2,711-acre open area that includes 29 miles of trails managed by Larimer County, as reported by 9News.
