The woman fell about 15 to 20 feet, but her injuries are described as non-life threatening. Two other people were with her at the time of the incident.

Freun Mill has been the site of several injurious falls in the past 20 years, including a fatal fall in 2006. The last incident happened in June of 2016, when a man survived a 40-foot fall in the complex while engaging in urban exploring.
