JIM THORPE, Pa. - A hiker was seriously injured after falling off the trail leading to Glen Onoko Falls.
According to officials, the man fell 10-to-15 feet sometime before 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
It took firefighters from four communities almost two hours to reach the victim, who officials say was from Philadelphia.
He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being transported to a trauma center.
Rescuers had to contend with snowy conditions and icy trails along with a tree that had fallen over one of the trails.
Rescue workers had to cut apart a tree to reach the victim, who they say appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s. He suffered facial and head injuries.
There's no update on his condition.
