A 25-year-old Grand Island woman was rescued by State Parks Police after she fell out of a tree just before 8 p.m. Friday between the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole state parks just north of the American Falls.

Melissa Thompson reportedly suffered head lacerations in a 30-foot fall from the tree she had climbed but refused medical treatment.

She was issued a summons for failure to stay on designated walkways between the state parks.
