Motorcycle driven off cliff in northern Cape Breton

A 62-year-old PEI woman was seriously injured last evening in an accident that occurred on Meat Cove Rd. shortly before 6 p.m.

The woman was moving the motorcycle she and a family member had been travelling on, and she lost control of the bike, went over a nearby cliff, and fell 30 metres to the ground below.

The motorcycle came to rest approximately 10 metres from where the woman landed.

The woman survived the fall, but did suffer serious injuries. The family member slid down the cliff to assist her.

Two volunteer fire departments, one of which had a high-angle rescue team, assisted with the rescue of the woman.

She was stabilized, transported to Bay St. Lawrence via a civilian boat, then transferred by EHS to local hospital where she was air lifted for further medical treatment.

The RCMP would like to acknowledge the assistance of the various agencies and civilians who helped during this rescue, as it was a very dangerous and challenging situation.
