A teenage girl was rescued from a Baltimore County, Md., stone quarry the morning of Aug. 1 after she was rock climbing and fell. Authorities said two teens were climbing at the Delight Quarry in Reisterstown when one of the girls fell and got stuck on a ledge. The Baltimore County Tactical Team couldn't reach her by climbing, so rescuers airlifted two emergency workers down to help the girl. She was taken to Sinai Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. She has not been identified. (Source: WBAL-TV)
