Woman Hoisted to Safety From Water Tower in Delaware

A woman in Delaware was rescued after she was lifted to safety from the top of a water tower Wednesday morning.

The woman, who officials say was making repairs inside the steel water tower covered in stone located on a sprawling DuPont property in Wilmington, fell 10 to 15 feet off a ladder just after 9:00.

Emergency crews could not manuever the woman down the tight spiral staircase inside the tower and had to lift her off the top with a helicopter.

The rescuers were able to hoist the woman to safety and take her to Christiana hospital.

There was no word on the woman's condition, but she could be seen moving around as SkyForce10 hovered above the rescue.
