2 rescued after 50-ft fall from cliff

Posted: Updated:

A man and woman were hospitalized after falling off a 50 foot cliff in west Austin Tuesday morning.

It happened near the Pennybacker Bridge.

Authorities say the woman was able to free herself and call 911. She was taken by ambulance to UMC Brackenridge with non-life threatening injuries.

STARflight rescue crews had to be brought in to get the man from a ledge of the cliff. He was reportedly taken to the hospital as well with a leg injury. Crews say resources were nearby for this rescue, because just 20 minutes earlier a man with medical issues had to be rescued from Mount Bonnell.
