VIDEO: A daring rescue off a cliff at Peninsula State Park in Door County this weekend saved a woman’s life. She was in stable condition Monday after the difficult task of getting her safely off the cliff. Multiple agencies responded to make this rescue mission a success. Video shared by the Gibraltar Fire Department is just a glimpse of the treacherous rescue at the park in Door County after a 32-year-old woman fell from a parking lot on top of Eagle Bluff, landing on a ledge about 50 feet below. Gibraltar Fire Capt. Bob Volpe said, “We had very little space and it was on an incline, probably 15-20 degrees where she was.” Getting to that ledge was no easy task. “I had all my resources that were coming on scene,” Ephraim Fire Chief Justin MacDonald said. “I would tell them you need to take all your equipment, go down the trail.”
