Safe NJ rescue

PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. -

Emergency responders in Warren County, N.J., safely rescued a man who was stuck atop a small mountain.

Crews were called to the Delaware River Park in Phillipsburg just before 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Martin Faust was intoxicated and stuck at the top of a mountain, authorities said.

A high-rescue team from Clinton, N.J.,  along with crews from Flemington and Whitehouse, assisted the Phillipsburg emergency squad and fire department with the rescue.

Faust, 25, of Phillipsburg, was taken to St. Luke's Hospital-Warren to be checked out, but he was not medically injured.

Two other men were with Faust in the park: Josiah Turner, 23, and Jared Turner, 27, both of Phillipsburg.

All three men will be charged with defiant trespassing. Josiah Turner is also facing an arrest warrant from another jurisdiction, police said.
