KANARRAVILLE, Utah (News4Utah)- Search and rescue crews in Iron County were called to a popular southern Utah hike Monday afternoon on reports that a woman had fallen and possibly broken her legs.

Police say the report came in around 3:30 p.m. from the Kanarraville Falls hike.

Crews with Iron County Sheriffs' Office, Iron County Search and Rescue and Iron County Ropes responded and were able to bring the 26-year-old woman to safety.

"Alcohol is believed to have been a contribution factor in the fall as well as the slick conditions," Lt. Del Schlosser with Iron County Sheriff's Office said.
