Man Rescued After Fall from Roaring Run


Eagle Rock, VA - Rescue crews were called in to help a hiker over the weekend who fell from a popular waterfall.

Botetourt County Emergency Management says this is the view from Roaring Run where crews worked to help the 18-year-old Franklin County man.

We are told the man was visiting the falls for the first time with a group of friends when he fell from the falls, as far as 25 feet, to the water below.

Division Chief of Operations, Jason Ferguson, says his crews respond to a few calls a year to the falls.

None have resulted in serious injuries including Saturday's victim.
