A four-year-old boy fell off a 70-foot cliff at Red River Gorge in eastern Kentucky and suffered a few scratches and bruises, but walked away without any severe injuries, officials said.
The boy and his parents were hiking when he slipped and fell, hitting “multiple ledges” before landing about 70 feet (21 meters) below. “Miraculously, the child was relatively unscathed,” said an official.
Rescue crews say the boy’s father scrambled down the cliff, reached his son and carried him downhill, crossing the Red River at the Sheltie Trace suspension bridge, to reach KY 715.
Rescue crew team members met the father and son as the two reached Highway 715.
