Clarksville Police reports hiker rescued after falling down cliff

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – At 5:00pm today, May 13th, first responders were dispatched to the dead end of Max Court for a report of a hiker who had fallen down a cliff.

An officer at the scene estimated the 18-year-old white male fell down about a sixty foot drop, then slid several more feet before coming to rest near the Cumberland River.

His location made a water rescue much faster and safer than trying to get him back up the cliff.

Clarksville Fire Rescue personnel transported the patient in a Fire Rescue boat to the Clarksville Marina where CPD District Two dayshift officers secured a landing zone for a Life-Flight helicopter.

The young man was airlifted to Skyline Hospital at 6:24pm. He appeared to be conscious and breathing; exact injuries are not yet known. Montgomery County EMS paramedics assisted in the rescue.
