Pliers were repaired after a hunter accidentally fell on the wires while cleaning her safety wire on Thursday, Colorado Department of Public Safety officials said.

Investigators were called to the property near Boulder on a report that the hunter fell off the wire while cleaning the wire, according to a release from the Colorado Department for Environmental Quality.

The wire was covered in rust and was broken in several places, according the release.

The wire was taken to the safety inspection department for repairs, officials said in the release, which did not identify the hunter or the wire.

The hunter was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
