Rappelling down

M U, 33, and a friend were rappelling down the side of a cliff when something went wrong and the woman fell between 15 and 30 feet, according to Gill Hall, operations director of Bennington Rescue. U was a first-time climber, Hall said.

Yep.

Don't know that this information is helpful - I'd suspect that something went wrong if a rappeller fell
