Man falls off cliff, sent to hospital


A young man is in a local hospital after tumbling down the side of a 60 to 75 foot cliff at Cameron Park on Monday.

Waco police officer Christopher Sharpless says it appears the 20-year-old victim was walking up a foot trail looking over Emnons Cliff when he slipped and fell 30 to 40 feet.

Waco Fire and Rescue had to hike down the trail to get to him.

Rescue crews carried him out on a backboard before putting him into the ambulance. The man was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center with unspecified injuries.
