Crews rescued a woman who fell down an old mine pit in Chisholm on Monday afternoon.

The 30-year-old woman fell about 100 feet, according to KSTP sister station WDIO.

Residents say the area where the woman fell is a popular one for kids who like to jump in and swim.

Chisholm Police Chief Vern Manner says the victim was recovered around 4:30 p.m. and brought up the hill of the cliff.

The woman had serious injuries, according to authorities. She was airlifted to Essentia Health St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth.

No additional information was available.
