POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Powell County Search and Rescue team members rescued a man who reportedly became stuck on a ledge at Natural Bridge State Park.

Rescue leaders say a 21-year-old man was hiking with friends when he climbed down a ledge, but the rocks were too slippery and he couldn’t climb back up.

Reportedly when it was clear he was trapped his friends called for help.

Powell SAR members used ropes to pull the man to safety.

He was not hurt.
