Alaska – A Washington teenager fell from a cliff during a hike in Alaska, as she talked to her mother on a cell phone. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), 18-year-old Cherelle LaGrou was rescued after 45 minutes following the 30-feet fall.
The teen’s mother, Shelly LaGrou, was 1,500 miles away in Washington during the incident, and tried to calm her daughter over the phone while her father called to seek help. Cherelle LaGrou was working at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge for the summer. Her employer called Alaska State Troopers after being contacted by her father.
The teen’s rescue was filmed and is set to air on the National Geographic Channel reality show “Alaska State Troopers” in the fall.
Cherelle LaGrou, who sustained only minor scratches in the incident, is quoted as stating of what happened to her, “It feels like it was something out of a movie… It was all just so unreal that it was actually happening.”
