Buffalo Police say a woman looking for ghosts at the city's historic rail terminal has been injured in a fall.

A rescue call came in at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. First responders found the 35-year-old Kenmore woman, who had fallen about 15-20 feet through a substation roof near the back of the property.

She was taken to a hospital and was treated for multiple injuries. A man who was with her wasn't injured.

Police say the duo was on the property without permission. The nearly 100-year-old terminal is a favorite haunt of ghost hunters.
