I read in the news paper he is a well-known local photographer was rescued about 200 feet above the pond we hike by. He fell an estimated 8 feet off a ledge while hiking. Its the same place we go all the time. They had to hike more than a mile through heavy brush and steep terrain and had to cut through thick brush to get to him. Rescuers brought a backboard to carry him to the boat. Then the boat took him to the ramp where an ambulance was waiting. They say he is going to be OK. Here are some pictures for the news.
