Hiker safe after daring rescue in Powell County
A man is safe after a daring rescue in Powell County.
Powell County Search and Rescue says the hiker, Christian Jones, got lost in the Red River Gorge Tuesday night.
They say he had bush-whacked up a cliff and got stranded.
It was dark, cold and rainy. Rescue crews say those conditions added danger to the mission.
They say Jones used his last one-percent battery on his phone to turn on his flash-light, allowing rescuers to find him.
Powell County Search and Rescue says it was one of the most dangerous rescues they have attempted.
