10-year-old girl airlifted from Sugarloaf Mountain


FREDERICK, Md. (WDVM)– According to officials, a 10-year-old girl has fallen from the yellow trail in Sugarloaf Mountain Sunday afternoon.

According to officials, the girl was with her parents when they were up on rocks sightseeing where she apparently lost her balance and fell. Crews arrived on scene 20 to 30 minutes after the fall and because of the tough terrain had to airlift her out of the area.

“There are access issues up there because its mountains trail nothing really easy to get around a lot of carrying stuff by hand so early on having previous knowledge of the location we contacted Maryland state police aviation to utilize their resource as well,” said Carroll Manor Fire Chief Mike Smallwood.

Officials say that the girl suffered serious head injuries but is in stable condition.
