15-year-old Injured; Two Others Stranded:
Rescuers free 15-year-old after
fall at Perry gorge; injured girl
flown to Strong Memorial

PERRY — A 15-year-old injured girl who had fallen over a 250-foot gorge along Handley Road was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester after a rope rescue team extricated her, a Wyoming County emergency official said this morning. Two others, a 15-year-old companion of the victim and male friend of the family, who tried to assist the girl who fell, also became stranded. Rescuers removed them and brought them to a safe location. The incident at 7536 Handley Rd. was called in at 5:21 p.m. Thursday, county Fire and EMS Coordinator William Streicher said. He said the 15-year-old was at the bottom of the gorge with injuries.

“Upon arrival of the Perry PD (Police Department) and Perry firefighters, the Wyoming County Rope Rescue Team was requested to assist,” Streicher said in the report. “During the rescue it was learned that a 15 year old companion of the girl was also stranded part way down the gorge. Also during the rescue a friend of the family attempted to assist on their own and also became stranded part way down the gorge.”

The Rope Rescue Team extricated the injured female from the bottom of the gorge with assistance of firefighters on scene, who transported the girl to the awaiting Mercy Flight Helicopter and was transported to Strong Hospital in Rochester,” he said. “One firefighter received minor injuries and was treated and remained on scene.”

The fire companies responding to the scene were Perry and Perry Center, Wyoming, Cowlesville, Bennington and Attica; along with Perry ambulance. Wyoming County Emergency Services, Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department, Perry police, New York State Police, Livingston County EMS and Mercy Flight assisted at the scene. The fire chief in charge was Perry Assistant Fire Chief Pail Hinsken. Responders were at the scene for about five hours, Streicher said.
