Any information if this woman fell off the falls a nearly 20 ft drop, or if she fell on the surrounding rocks etc? Just curious, either way speedy recovery!

I know her injuries were described as minor, which makes a 20-foot drop seem less likely, however I will see if I can further clarify what kind of fall she experience. Thanks for the question! -KD
