Snoqualmie Police Captain Nick Almquist said the police were called at 10:50 a.m. March 15, when witnesses reported seeing the woman fall. Witnesses also helped police officers and Search and Rescue volunteers to determine the woman’s location. SAR volunteers recovered her body while police blocked off the surrounding area.

Because of the high flow of Snoqualmie Falls, which crested at noon yesterday with a high flow of more than 17,700 cfs, searchers took nearly four hours to complete the recovery.
