OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Officials say a northern Utah rescue team hoisted a fallen hiker out of a ravine using a helicopter.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1WjyZmT ) that emergency dispatchers say the man cut his back after falling from the 22nd Street Trail in Ogden on Sunday evening. Officials weren’t sure how seriously the man was injured, but did not think the injuries were life-threatening.

According to Ogden Fire Battalion Chief Mike Slater, Weber County Search and Rescue was able to reach the hiker and get him into a position to be lifted from the ravine. He was taken to a parking lot by helicopter and then transported to the hospital by ambulance.
