A rescue team of firefighters and paramedics needed to use all-terrain vehicles Friday afternoon to aid a 34-year-old woman who suffered a broken leg while rock climbing, and transport her out of the rugged Meadow Run section of Ohiopyle State Park to a medical helicopter.

The woman, whose name could not be confirmed, was climbing with her boyfriend at about 1 p.m. when one of her legs apparently got tangled in a rope, park officials said. Her companion was on the ground serving as the belayer while the woman was climbing, they said.
