RUSSELL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A teenager was flown to the hospital after officials say he from an overlook near the Wolf Creek Dam Sunday.

South Russell Fire Chief Roger Dale Coffee tells WKYT that a 17-year-old male was with his family when he fell more than 200 feet from the Lake Cumberland overlook on the lake side of the dam.

Officials say two boaters helped bring fire and ems crews to where the teen had fallen.

Coffee says that the teen had a broken leg and several lacerations, but was alert and talking to rescuers.

The teen was flown to UK Medical Center in Lexington. We do not know his condition.
