First responders rescued an individual from a rock in a New Hampshire river Sunday after they suffered a leg damage and had been stranded for greater than 24 hours.
Firefighters and police from a number of departments responded to Livermore Falls in Campton round 10:45 a.m., in line with Campton-Thornton Hearth Rescue. A caller instructed them they might hear somebody yelling for assist throughout the Pemigewasset River, however that they had been not sure of the character of the emergency.
When crews arrived, they had been in a position to talk verbally with the stranded individual, who was on a rock on the western facet of the river, the division stated. The individual instructed them they’d suffered a leg damage and had been stranded for over 24 hours.
Crews requested a ship, and within the meantime rigged up a rope system, the division stated. They had been in a position to belay a crewmember over to medically consider the injured individual.
As soon as the boat arrived, crews went out to the rock and rescued the injured individual, the division stated. An ambulance then took the injured individual to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth.
The hearth division didn’t establish the individual they rescued, nor specify the individual’s present situation.
