Crews rescue man on McAfee Knob trail
Friday, March 8, 2013
Roanoke County crews transported a man to the hospital to night after rescuing him from the McAfee Knob trail.
Roanoke County Fire and Rescue spokeswoman Jennifer Conley Sexton said the man called authorities at about 6:30 and told them he could not find his way out of a shelter on the trail because of snow that accumulated in the area.
Sexton said crews organized and reached the man quickly Friday night, retrieving him using an ATV.
She said the man was cold and wet, but otherwise healthy. He was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
