FENTON — A 17-year-old girl is now out of a hospital intensive-care unit after getting caught in a noose at a St. Louis-area haunted house.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department says the girl's condition is improving. Her name has not been released, and no further information about her condition was available.

The girl was working at Creepyworld, a haunted house near Fenton, when the accident happened Thursday. Her job was to scare guests. The noose was being used as a prop. A co-worker found the girl while making safety checks. She was unconscious at the time.

Authorities believe it was an accident.
