Maine Game Wardens Save Caribou Hiker after a 40 Foot Drop

A Caribou woman suffered multiple injuries after falling 40 feet in Aroostook State Park. The Maine Warden Service says 37-year-old Zara Gillis was hiking with her sister and two children Friday afternoon. As the group walked the trail to the south peak in Aroostook State Park, Gillis slipped on a snowy area 1/2 mile in on the trail and slid forty feet down. Officials say she suffered a possible broken hip, some facial lacerations, and was unable to walk out on her own. According to wardens, conditions on the trail were slippery due to the falling snow and leaf cover on the trail.
