One person was injured a week ago Monday afternoon after falling off a bluff in the Bull Ridge area, according to Cumberland County Emergency Management Director Greg Cary.

Cindy Martino, 56, of Burkesville, and her grandson were searching for a dog when she slipped on the wet ground and leaves and fell over the bluff, an approximate 150 foot drop, Cary said.

Rescuers made their way to Martino by foot while Cary manned a boat to the site of the fall. Martino was taken to a private boat ramp where an ambulance waited. She was transported to Cumberland County Hospital then to Monticello Airport where she was then flown to another hospital with multiple injuries.
