Boulder, CO – Though the title pretty much says it all, a female college student on mushrooms stripped naked and required rescue from the Third Flatiron over the weekend.
Taylor Powers, a 21-year-old University of Colorado student, was rescued on Sunday afternoon by Boulder rangers, Sheriff’s deputies, and other assorted personnel, all comprising a team of 35
gawkers rescue officials.
While hiking and climbing the Third Flatiron, Powers consumed mushrooms, stripped off all her clothes, and engaged in a fight with two other students she was with.
A 911 call was placed regarding a female hiker who was “high on mushrooms and in distress.”
The 35 man-strong rescue team responded to Chautauqua Park, after which a park ranger located Powers and discovered that the confused undergrad had “removed all of her clothing as was being restrained” by two male companions.
Rescuers handcuffed the unruly Powers, who struggled even as she was placed in a rescue basket.
She was cited for unlawful consumption of a controlled substance, and was transported to a Boulder hospital where she was treated before being released last night. Authorities are considering further charges against the other two students involved.
According to The Smoking Gun, Powers is a communications major. She did not comment on her weekend adventures on her Facebook page, which shows that she is an avid hiker and skier.
