A teenage girl escaped serious injury when she fell 30ft (9m) on to rocks down a County Durham quarry.
The accident happened at Crawleyside Bank in Stanhope on Wednesday evening.
It was initially thought that the 16-year-old from the Cleveland area had serious head and spinal injuries and she was airlifted to hospital.
But Durham Police revealed she had had a "miraculous escape" suffering only cuts to her head. Ambulance, police and fire crews all helped rescue the girl.
She is being kept in Durham's University Hospital for observation.
