Ruth Woroniecki is still dealing with serious injuries after taking a harrowing fall on a mountain near Los Angeles, but she’s feeling grateful to be alive.
Woroniecki fell 200-feet while descending Cucamonga Peak on an icy Christmas Eve morning. A tree stopped her violent fall.
9News spoke with her about the incident in the video below:
She essentially lived every hiker’s worst nightmare.
I can’t count the amount of times that I’ve been on a trail where one little slip over the edge would certainly lead to serious injury or death.
Here’s hoping she makes a full recovery.
Stay safe out there, friends.
