Woman hurt by falling ice trespassing at Minnehaha Falls

Scores of adventurers ignored trespassing signs at Minnehaha Falls, leading to at least 140 warnings being issued and one women being hurt by falling ice.

Tim Harlow of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The 20-year-old woman was taken to a hospital for noncritical injuries that are believed to be an arm or a wrist injury, said spokeswoman Robin Smothers.

“This is a problem for us every year,” Smothers said of thrill seekers hopping over barricades and wandering behind the frozen waterfall. “Every year we tell people to be safe and view them from the pavilion or on the foot bridge.”
