A teenage girl had to be rescued from the ravine in the Cleveland Metroparks in Brecksville earlier on Tuesday, said Brecksville Sgt. Bill Atsberger.
As of 9:15 p.m., the scene has been cleared and the teen has been taken to a local hospital.
Atsberger said that the teenager’s older brother was with her. Atsberger said that according to her brother, he jumped into the water first and the teen tried to follow.
