The Duluth Fire Department earlier today responded to 7800 Congdon Boulevard for a trail rescue. A male in his seventies reportedly slipped from a trail edge and fell around 20 feet off a cliff along Lake Superior.
Bystanders reported the fall to St. Louis County 911 Dispatch. 6 Engine, 4 Quint, and 1 Engine were able to locate, access, package, and extricate the patient to the parking area, where Mayo Ambulance waited and was able to begin treatment of the patient, who suffered some undisclosed injuries but was conscious and talking.
The patient was transferred by Mayo Ambulance to a local hospital.
