A man was rescued early Thursday after falling 20 feet down an embankment near Harrison Avenue.
Crews from Olympia Fire Department responded shortly after 2:30 a.m. to the 3200 block of Harrison Avenue Northwest. The man had gone through an opening in a fence along the edge of a parking lot.
“The individual was relieving himself and slipped and fell down a 20-foot rock wall,” said Todd Carson, the on-duty battalion chief.
The man’s hip was injured and he was lifted out using ropes attached to a fire truck ladder, which took about an hour and a half. He was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, Carson said.
