OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - An 11-year-old girl was injured after falling 20 to 30 feet while ziplining at the Westwood Baptist Church in west Olympia.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/29KRzCW ) that the girl fell at about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday and was airlifted to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma.

On Monday, church officials declined to comment on the girl’s condition at the request of the family.

Olympia Deputy Fire Chief Gregory Wright says the department responded to the call, but off-duty firefighters were already on the scene stabilizing the girl to avoid further injury.

Wright says the girl was conscious and was taken to the hospital.
