Mexico Woman Rescued After Getting Stuck On Cell Phone Tower

A Mexico woman is facing trespassing charges after getting stuck on a cell phone tower.

Mexico Public Safety responded to the area of the 600 block of Green Boulevard on Friday, October 27, 2023 just before 3pm.

Responding personnel found a 37-year-old Mexico woman about 75 foot up the tower.

The woman later stated she had climbed the tower to get a good look at the changing leaves, lost her shoe, and became unable to get down.

Mexico Public Safety Fire Truck-Aerial 213 responded and personnel safely got the woman down.

The owner of the tower responded to better secure it and the woman was taken to University of Missouri Hospital for treatment.

Mexico Public Safety Department says will forward a case to the Audrain County Prosecutor for 1st Degree Trespassing.
