Police say the injured woman was found stranded on a cliff about 200 feet from the ground in Alpine. It happened around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Members of the NYPD Aviation Unit flew a helicopter alongside the steep cliff and hovered about 50 feet above the woman while an officer was lowered to her. She was placed in a rescue basket and taken to Nyack Hospital, where she is in stable condition with a broken left ankle.

Seven members of the Aviation Unit participated in the rescue.
