Rescuers: Person fell, got stuck on North Carolina rock face

Rescuers removed a person who fell 100 feet and became stuck on a North Carolina rock face on Thursday, officials said.

The Transylvania County Rescue Squad said on its Facebook page that its personnel responded to the nose of Looking Glass Rock, made contact with the unidentified person and lowered them to the ground where an ambulance was to carry them to a nearby hospital.

Officials also said rescuers went out to assist a person who called the rescue squad who was still on the rock face. There was no word on injuries.

According to the website romanticasheville.com, Looking Glass Rock has an elevation of 3,980 feet (1.2 kilometers). The Looking Glass Rock trail climbs about 1,700 feet (518 meters) in just over three miles and is accessible from the town of Brevard, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Asheville.
