WOLFE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Officials with Wolfe County Search and Rescue responded to a call of an 11-year-old boy stranded on the ledge of a cliff Sunday afternoon.
Officials said the boy had been walking ahead of his family on a trail just before the Sky Bridge Arch. That's when he reportedly climbed under a railing, slipped and landed on a cliff ledge. Fortunately, he did not fall further, where there was a 100-foot drop.
Someone was able to lower a tow strap to secure him until crews arrived to get him off of the cliff.
When team members arrived on the scene, they used a ladder to get the boy back to safety. Wolfe County Search and Rescue says the boy was in good spirits after the rescue.
