DENVER — A woman was airlifted to a hospital after she belly-flopped in an 83-foot cliff dive at a popular Colorado spot over the Fourth of July holiday.
Rachel Dukich of Denver recorded the incident at Paradise Cove Cliff near Florissant in Teller County west of Colorado Springs.
She said the woman was reported to have a bloody nose and was “highly disoriented” after the dive.
“I think she jumped out far to be sure to clear the rock face and found herself in superman and instead of pulling her legs in to straighten out, she panicked, froze, and flailed,” Dukich wrote.
The video was later made private and out of public view by Dukich.
A Flight for Life helicopter was brought in to take the woman to a hospital. Her name and condition have not been released.
Witnesses have posted videos on social media warning other cliff divers to use caution and to be careful.
