A hiker was rescued from under a 1,500-pound boulder, which fell on her legs, Thursday, April 6.

The woman and her friend were hiking in Golden, Colorado’s North Table Mountain Park when the boulder cracked loose from a rock wall—not uncommon during the spring thaw.

Rescue workers were able to remove the rock using an hydraulic lift system.

The woman was trapped for about two hours.

The unconscious woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition with multiple fractures.
