Lake County Dispatch received a report of a woman falling about 30 feet from the lower falls at Gooseberry State Park on Saturday. 

According to a release, the incident happened at 7:16 p.m. and involved a 20-year-old woman. A Caring Bridge website has identified her as Rebecca Nara.


She was flown by Life Link to Essentia in Duluth. 

On Wednesday, it was announced through people close to Nara that she has died. 

Her family issued the following statement on Caring Bridge:

"She peacefully went while surrounded by friends and family. While this is truly a tragedy, it has saved her family from having to give the order to transition her to comfort care. Rebecca was a registered organ donor with healthy organs to pass on to others in need. Medical professionals said that her gifts will mean new lives for as many as 40 people. We are all very thankful for the prayers and support during this difficult time."
