The victim was trapped inside her vehicle after it went off a road and down a 70-foot embankment. The aerial rescue was necessary due to the steep terrain, the severity of her injuries and the car’s precarious position in the ravine, the statement said. A Maryland state police helicopter maneuvered 130 feet above while a paramedic was lowered to the scene and was assisted by rescue crews.
