Ocean County authorities are crediting the well-trained public safety staff at Six Flags for rescuing a woman injured after entering a clearly marked restricted area of the park Sunday night. 

According to a statement released by management at Six Flags, at approximately 7:30 p.m., emergency responders were called to the Jackson park to investigate reports of what was believed to be a person falling off a roller coaster. 

The park's public safety staff found the woman suffering a leg injury in a restricted location of the Six Flags Amusement center. 

Management said the unidentified woman climbed over a fence, then onto a roof of a building, where she lost footing and fell, causing her injury. She was transported to an area hospital suffering non-life threatening injuries. 

Six Flags officials would not immediately confirm if the woman would be charged with trespassing at this time. 

Company officials thanked public safety members for an excellent rescue operation and applauded the entire staff for keeping the park safe. 

Sunday night's incident is under investigation.
