ACTON – A rescue north of Acton Friday morning brought in several rescue crews from across the region.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m., the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a woman who fell off a cliff at the Acton Recreation Area.

Deputies said a 47-year-old woman was unconscious after falling 15 to 20 feet from a cliff, then rolling.

She was located, rescued, and then transported by helicopter to a Billings hospital.

Authorities did not release her condition Friday night.
