Salt Lake Emergency Rescuers Bring Wayward Hiker Off a Cliff

Posted Friday, August 30th 2013 @ 11am  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

"It is what it is."

That's how a laughing 23-year-old hiker described getting stuck on a cliff -- above Beck Street, at the north end of Salt Lake -- early Friday morning.

When he could no longer move up, down, left or right, the unidentified hiker began screaming for help.

Rescuers -- from the Salt Lake City Fire Department -- spent about two hours getting him down, by harnessing a line to him and lowering him.

They say the area is dangerous even for an experienced daylight...with proper equipment.
