Police officers are stunned after a girl went to great lengths to take a selfie and landed in the hospital Facebook/Placer County Sheriff's Office

One Sacramento woman is in the hospital after she tried to take a selfie on top of the Foresthill Bridge in California on Tuesday. The bridge is the highest in the Golden State at 730 feet and is one of the highest in the United States–the Golden Gate Bridge is only 220 feet above the San Francisco Bay.

According to a post by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, the woman was on the girders when she lost her balance and suffered a 60-foot-fall. They also warned that venturing into restricted areas can end in citations or arrests.

The woman was actually on a catwalk underneath the bridge. After her fall, she was taken via helicopter to a nearby hospital. One of her friends told CBS Sacramento that “they were taking a picture on the bridge and on the big bolts that hold the beams together, she stepped on them kind of weirdly and lost balance and fell backwards.” He also said that the fall knocked her out and she suffered a deep cut on her arm and a few fractured bones. She is currently still in the hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

The area underneath the bridge, where the woman fell, is a popular spot for pictures and wayward daredevils. According to CNN, police have begun keeping an eye on the area after videos and images of people in the restricted area have become prevalent on social media.
