Teen Slips into Quarry
A daring rescue by crews in Hamden, Connecticut as a free climber found himself in trouble.
Firefighters were called to Sleeping Giant State Park just after 5 PM Friday.
A 19-year-old Quinnipiac student got stuck in the quarry area after slipping down a rock face.
Crews wasted no time getting to the young man.
One firefighter rappelled down the quarry and put a harness and helmet on the climber before moving him to solid ground.
Facing a dangerous situation themselves, rescuers were well prepared.
The climber was fortunate to only suffer a minor injury to his wrist.
The climber was given a citation for disorderly conduct.
