EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — An Evansville, Indiana, woman has died after falling from a cliff at Garden of the Gods in the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois.

Equality, Illinois, Fire Chief Cole Baker says 36-year-old Sara Rappee fell about 60 feet around 6 p.m. Saturday.

Baker tells the Evansville Courier & Press another hiker heard Rappee fall and called 911. He says someone had been hiking with Rappee but no one saw her fall.
