A 14-YEAR-OLD girl was badly injured when she plunged 35ft off a cliff.
Firefighters from Dewsbury were called to Denby View, Thornhill, at 7.55pm yesterday to rescue the girl who had fallen over the edge while riding a bike.
The girl, from Thornhill, had been riding with her sister in an area known locally as Thornhill Edge when the accident happened.
She is understood to have fallen from her bike, and rolled down a banking before falling 35ft down the cliff face.
Firefighters and paramedics managed to climb down to where the girl landed. She was carried to safety on a stretcher to an ambulance waiting at the bottom of the drop.
She was taken to Dewsbury District Hospital with a badly fractured arm and pelvis. Her injuries were not believed to be life threatening.
Colin Brown, watch manager at Dewsbury fire station, said: "The girl was brave and we were pleased with the progress of the rescue. If she had fallen on to rocks nearby it could have been disastrous."
