CAMBRIDGE (AP) -- Vermont rescuers say a teenager has been rescued after falling about 50 feet while hiking at Smugglers Notch.
Stowe Mountain Rescue says the teen, who was hiking with an adult relative, had wandered up into one of the gullies above the information booth into steep terrain when he slipped and fell Monday morning.
The relative was able to call 911. Neil Van Dyke, the team leader for Stowe Mountain Rescue, says it took crews about two hours to bring the teen to the road. He was taken to Fletcher Allen Health Care for treatment of multiple non-life-threatening injuries.
Cambridge Fire and Rescue, Vermont State Police and Colchester rescue helped with the rescue.
