JACKSON, Ga. (AP) - A Savannah woman has been killed after authorities say she slipped while walking on the waterfalls at a Georgia state park.

Monroe County sheriff’s Sgt. Lawson Bittick says the death happened Friday afternoon at High Falls State Park south of Atlanta.

Authorities say 38-year-old Daniella Flanagan was walking on the rocks of the falls with her husband when she slipped and fell.

Bittick says the woman’s husband called 911 around 5:45 p.m. Friday.

Bittick says emergency crews were able to get her out of the water and performed CPR, but she died a short time later at a hospital.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2r7GGEa ) that the falls are about 100 yards south of the bridge on High Falls Road.

Bittick says there are signs that warn not to climb on the rocks.
