FARMINGTON — A woman was critically injured Sunday after she and her husband fell 40 feet off of the waterfall at Davis Creek Trail, police say.
The couple was hiking with their teenage children and some friends at about 6 p.m. when they fell off the waterfall, said Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Joshua Boucher.
The man sustained a head laceration, but he was in better condition than his wife, who was unconscious. "She wasn't doing so well," Boucher said.
Search and rescue crews used a helicopter to hoist the couple out of the canyon. The woman was flown by helicopter to University Hospital, while the man was transported by ambulance.
Boucher said it took teams about 30 minutes to locate the couple after their fall, and another 45 minutes to get the woman out of the canyon and to the hospital.
It's unclear how the couple fell over the waterfall, he said.
