ENUMCLAW, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a King County sheriff’s helicopter has rescued a man trapped near Mud Mountain Dam near Enumclaw.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/hKhN0E ) the man was heard yelling for help Thursday after apparently being trapped for at least two days in an area of rough terrain.

Enumclaw Fire Chief Randy Fehr says rescue teams on the ground made voice contact with the man, then he was spotted from the chopper. He was hoisted up and then taken by ambulance to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Fehr had no details about the man’s condition. The fire chief says they heard reports a few days earlier of a man shouting in the same area, but then the shouts went away.

An Army Corps of Engineers employee heard the shouts on Thursday morning while making routine checks and notified the King County Sheriff’s Office.
