A woman fainted in Utah's Arches National Park and then hit her head on a rock. She woke up thinking she was watching TV.
ABC 4 reported that Minnie John of New Jersey started questioning if she knew the woman who was with the doctor checking on her, or if she was famous. John said, "Her sister the doctor asked me to guess and I told her I just hit my head, I can't remember. She said smiling 'Modern Family' and I said of course!"
Julie Bowen and her sister Annie told the woman that a guide had seen her fall face forward onto a rock. She said that her glasses broke her fall. John said that they gave her electrolytes and assured her that she would be okay.
John fractured her nose in the fall and received five stitches later at the hospital. She was very thankful for Bowen and her sister.
A trip to Arches has always been on John's bucket list. She said, "Daredevil or dumb as can be, I still consider this trek up the mountain as one of my proudest achievements in my life. Sometimes you need to take those chances in life to live to experience heights and depths."
