Woman hospitalized after fall

Sheridan, WY – Authorities say a woman was hospitalized after she fell 75-100 feet while hiking on a ranch west of Dayton in northern Wyoming.

Dayton Rescue Emergency Medical Technician Yodi Miles said the woman was flown to a hospital in Billings, Mont.

Miles would not release the woman's name citing patient confidentiality but said she believes she is a 20-year-old Sheridan
College student.

Miles said she believes the woman fell Saturday when she slipped on the snowy surface while sightseeing with a man.

The man also fell the same distance but was not hurt.

Miles said she did not know which hospital in Billings the woman was taken to.
