A 36-year-old woman fractured her leg on the uneven terrain at Rockport State Recreation Area Thursday afternoon (July 30th).

Alpena City Fire Chief Bill Forbush said first responders from the Alpena Township Fire Department responded, working with Alpena County paramedics to treat her injuries, safely remove her from the area, about a half-mile off the parking area and transport her to the hospital for further care.

Onlookers stopped to watch rescuers traverse the rocky terrain to help the victim. She was transported to Mid-Michigan Medical Center-Alpena by county paramedic ambulance.

She is expected to make a full recovery.
