A teenager survived a fall of 20 to 30 feet at a popular North Carolina park known for its spectacular cliffs.
An ambulance took the teen to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, the station reported.
The teen was “conscious and responsive,” a park ranger told Greensboro CBS-TV affiliate WFMY.

A nurse happened to be nearby and tended to the teen, who had a head injury, WFMY reported.
The park is known for its “picturesque cascades and waterfalls, high rock cliffs, spectacular views and a mountain cave,” according to the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation website.
In March 2017, 17-year-old Jason Messer of Stokesdale died a month after falling at least 50 feet at the park, the Greensboro News and Record reported at the time.
