Hiker rescued after fall


A man had to be rescued at a popular hiking area in Carbon County, after he fell while rock climbing.

Crews were called to Glen Onoko Falls in Jim Thorpe Sunday afternoon.

Officials say the man fell about 20 feet during his climb.

They were able to rescue the man -- who's from Kunkletown -- and bring him down the mountain.

Rescuers say it took them about 45 minutes to get to the man, who suffered injuries to his leg.
