PROVO, Utah (AP) - For a second day in a row, crews had to rescue a hiker who fell while hiking Mount Timpanogos.
The Daily Herald in Provo reports (https://bit.ly/1Cb2aTI) that the Utah County Sheriff’s Office says a 36-year-old man fell around 10:30 a.m. Friday when he was below the summit.
Sgt. Spencer Cannon says the man, who Sheriff’s deputies are not identifying, suffered fairly serious lacerations to his legs. However, the injuries are not life-threatening.
Cannon says a hiker nearby happened to be a doctor. The doctor was able to stabilize the man.
A rescue team then arrived and transported him to a hospital.
The incident comes a day after a 48-year-old Farmington woman, also near the mountain summit, fell 150 feet and was seriously injured.
