Technical rescue for a Katy Trail biker


We're learning more information about an accident on the Katy Trail Sunday night. The Boone County Fire Department says that a 52-year-old woman fell with her bike down a 25 foot embankment near Rocheport.


The steep terrain forced rescue personnel to perform a technical rescue. Rather than risk additional injuries by pulling her back up the embankment, EMT's loaded the woman from the bottom of the fall, where a rescue

boat on


the Missouri River could get to her.



She was then secured on a backboard and brought by boat to an ambulance. The woman was taken to University Hospital with moderate injuries.
