Woman dies, man injured in fall into Winnebago County quarry

POYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A woman has died and her husband was injured after they fell into a quarry in Winnebago County.

The incident happened Monday in the town of Poygan. Authorities say they are still investigating, but it appears the couple from Oshkosh had been at a nearby business and walked to the top ridge of an adjacent quarry. It appears they were unfamiliar with the terrain in the area.

They were found by a friend at the bottom of the quarry, where there is roughly a 40- to 50-foot drop. The 31-year-old woman died at the scene. The 31-year-old man was airlifted to a hospital.
