One woman is in hospital with serious injuries after a dramatic water rescue in Golden Ears Provincial Park on Saturday night.

Rescue crews were called to Gold Creek Falls around 6 p.m.

Witnesses said the ordeal began when a man went swimming in a pool above the falls and got into trouble. A woman from the same group fell in and was swept over the waterfall.

Fortunately, the woman’s friends managed to pull her out of the water. Rescuers then arrived and provided first aid. The three other members of the group all made it out safely.
