Woman falls from cliff in south Spokane

Injuries may be life-threatening

By From staff reports

A woman may have life-threatening injuries following a fall this afternoon from a popular South Hill overlook.

Witnesses said the woman, who they said was in her 30s, was standing at the overlook at Cliff Drive and Stevens Street around 12:30 p.m. when she fell about 30 feet through the brush to the ground below.

Anthony Morris said he had just borrowed the woman’s lighter to light a cigarette. He looked out over the city then looked back toward the woman and saw the colors of her clothing falling through the brush.

Witnesses called 911 and Morris said he flagged down the ambulance when it arrived.

“That’s a pretty long fall,” said Dave Leavenworth, deputy fire chief for Spokane Fire Department. He said the woman’s injuries might be life-threatening.

More information will be posted on this story once it becomes available.
