A logger was injured when a tree fell and pinned him at a mine site near near Clark’s Gap and Peter’s Gap. The man was on a steep slope and co-workers assisted the man until help arrived. By the time first responders reached the man he was already freed from the fallen tree. A helicopter ambulance landed at the mountain location and flew the man to Charleston Area Medical Center.
A first responder was also injured during the rescue. The rescuer fell 50 feet down an embankment. He was taken to Princeton Community Hospital where he was treated and later released.
