A person is trapped in a ravine in Indian Falls, and it is unknown whether the person fell in or hiked in. The Genesee County Heavy Rope Team is on scene along with members of county emergency services, and Pembroke and Indian Falls fire departments. Mercy Flight has been dispatched.

The staging area is in the vicinity of the Log Cabin Restaurant.

UPDATE 6:01 p.m.: Andrew Hoy said he and his friend, Evan Sutherland, were at the falls when he saw a girl fall from a cliff head first, landing on the rocks. Her body slipped into the water and she appeared to be unconscious. Sutherland and another bystander jumped in the water and pull her to shore. She revived while she was still in the water. She's being boarded and collared and tended to.

UPDATE 7:55 p.m.: The victim's name is Kourtney McCorry, a 17-year-old resident of Spencerport. She was taken by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital complaining of pain in her left shoulder, right ankle, right wrist and head. She was fully alert and able to be interviewed by Sheriff's Deputy Tim Wescott before leaving on Mercy Flight. She told him she and her boyfriend were climbing up a steep, rocky incline by the falls. He was helping her, but when she grabbed a branch, the branch gave way, causing her to fall. In addition to Evan Sutherland and the other bystander who pulled her from the water, a cook from the Log Cabin crossed the creek with towels and gave her first aid until EMTs arrived. The name of the cook was not released. At least one other person may have helped prior to emergency responders arriving.
