An 11-year-old girl was airlifted to the hospital after falling 20 to 30 feet while ziplining in west Olympia Sunday afternoon, Deputy Fire Chief Gregory Wright said.
The Olympia Fire Department responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. at Westwood Baptist Church at the corner of Kaiser Road and Mud Bay Road. Off-duty firefighters were already on the scene stabilizing the girl to avoid further injury, Wright said.
The girl was conscious, Wright said, but was taken to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma.
Westwood Baptist Church officials declined to comment on the girl’s condition Monday, at the request of the family.
