PROVO, Utah (AP) - A 23-year-old woman is recovering at a hospital in Provo after she and another woman were rescued over the weekend from Rock Canyon.

Provo fire officials say the woman suffered injuries to an arm and a leg after she fell as far as 60 feet while hiking in the Red Slab area of the canyon Sunday afternoon.

Provo Fire Department Capt. Dean York told The Daily Herald (https://tinyurl.com/muclydb) the other woman suffered rope burns on her hands when she tried to secure the rope after her hiking partner fell.

Both were transported to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.

Their names have not been released.
