She escaped with a few minor injuries, almost a miracle.

On Sunday, a little girl fell into a cavity dug in the middle of the rocks of the Huelgoat forest, in the Arrée mountains (Finistère) where she had come for a walk with her family.

According to the firefighters, she would have made a fall of about four meters on the well-known site of the Household of the Virgin, on which many children and adults venture every day.

According to


, the girl who was not 10 years old was conscious when help arrived.

She was rescued by members of the hazardous environment reconnaissance and intervention group.

Transported by helicopter to the CHU

The young victim spent nearly two hours at the bottom of the cavity before being able to find the light and her parents.

She was transported to Brest University Hospital by the Dragon 29 helicopter to take exams.

Less known than the forest of Brocéliande, the forest of Huelgoat is still one of the most visited places in central Brittany.
