MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A woman is recovering after falling into a 15-foot hole Tuesday night in southeast Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Police Department says the woman fell into a small hole in the ground near the 500 block of Malcolm Avenue Southeast, in the Prospect Park neighborhood.

A recuse crew responded around 11:30 p.m., using a rope to lower down into the hole, which was about 15 feet deep. Rescuers gave the woman a harness and pulled her up to safety.

The woman suffered only minor injuries, police say.
