ALBANY, N.H. — Authorities say a 12-year-old girl is safe after falling into a river and getting swept to the top of a 15-foot waterfall in Albany, N.H.

New Hampshire Fish and Game says the girl, who is from Milford, was at the Swift River on Monday when she slipped off a rock and was swept about 150 feet down river to the top of Lower Falls.

She was able to grab onto a rock and hold on long enough for a bystander, James Barnhouse of Dover, Ohio, to reach her. Another bystander notified the caretaker at a nearby campground, who radioed the Carroll County Sheriff’s office for help.

Conway fire personnel and Fish and Game officers reached the stranded pair and helped them to safety.
