Response to August 2004 Accidents/Rescues


A woman has died after falling 30 feet into a creek in Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in Bushkill, Pa.
Park Rangers say Tatiana Culvert, 44, of Effort, Pa., was hiking with five friends Saturday afternoon when they crossed an elevated log over the Raymondskill Creek.
Witnesses say everyone else straddled the makeshift log bridge and shimmied across, but Culvert tried to stand up and walk across.
She lost her balance and fell into a section of the creek that's only 10 inches deep.
Rangers say Culvert was conscious for a short time after the fall, but lost consciousness just before the arrival of emergency crews.
Culvert was the mother of five children.
