Fatal fall at quarry warns others of life-threatening risks

Airlifted to lehigh valley hospital.

No one else was hurt.

>>>rob vaughn: a gofundme page has been set up for a young woman who died after slipping and falling 300 feet in a quarry.

She leaves behind two children and a fiance.

First responders say they hope this tragedy will remind people to heed no trespassing warnings.

Wfmz's katiera winfrey has more.

>>>reporter: a warm day turned tragic... just before 6 o'clock saturday evening first responders rushed to the dyer quarry at french creek state park.

There they found 27 yea?old elizabeth mckibbin's body in the water.

State police say she'd been partying and drinking with friends... when she slipped and fell 300 feet while dancing atop a flat rock..

>>>jonathan carola/ geigertown fire "don't take that risk."

>>>reporter: deputy fire chief jonathan carola, with the friendship fire company #1 of geigertown, was one of the first on the scene.

Our cameras weren't allowed at the quarry where mckibbin died, but carola says this one just on the other side of dyer quarry is similar but on a much smaller scale.

>>>reporter: "to kind of put this into perspective this rock face is about 6?80 feet tall.

That rock face where that woman fell was about 5 times higher than that at 300 feet."

>>>reporter: carola says this picture shows the spot where mckibbin fell.

The small patch of grass below is where emergency crews parked.

He says people who frequent these areas may have a false sense of securit?

Thinking they know their way aroun?

But never factoring how erosion can change
