Amber Kohnhorst, 25, took the tumble from a rock ledge, KMSP reports. The owners of the Cane Beds Inn, where she was staying, noticed that she had not returned in almost 25 hours and contacted authorities, who found Kohnhorst blowing her emergency whistle. She was taken to a hospital in Utah for treatment, KMSP added.
"It was really nothing short of miraculous that this lady was found," Cane Beds, Hildale-Colorado City Fire Chief Kevin Barlow told the St. George News. "She was ledged out 200 feet down a cliff in a slot (canyon). We estimate she fell 50 feet, free fall, and another 50 feet of tumble and slide. She was real beat up."
