Teen Dies After Sliding Down Cliffs Along the Delaware River

Jul 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Featured Articles

A Westtown teenage girl died from her injures Thursday afternoon when she fell off cliffs of the Delaware River on the Pennsylvania side.

The incident took place on the cliffs across from the Eddy Farm Retreat and Conference Center in Sparrowbush just before 3:00 PM.

Multiple agencies responded to the call including Deepark Police and local Park Rangers who were seen giving CPR to the teen. She was flown to Westchester Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries.

It is believed that part of the shale gave way as the teen was walking along the cliffs causing her to slide down some 60 feet landing on the rocks below.

Eastern Pike Regional Police Department Assistant Chief Eric Stewart said the incident was under investigation.
