A teenager was rescued by a helicopter after breaking his leg in a 60-foot fall from the Tumbledown Mountain in Maine.
The Mahoosuc Mountain Rescue team needed to trek for one mile to find Kyle and treat a compound fracture to his leg, according to local news outlet WMTW. It took around three hours from the fall to the point of his being flown to receive treatment.
Kyle, who is from Dixfield in Maine, was treated at the Franklin Memorial Hospital and then Maine Medical Center for further aid.
The responders then called for the helicopter which was pictured winching Kyle up into the air for the rescue. Assistance was provided by Franklin Search and Rescue, Mahoosuc Mountain Rescue, and Weld, Wilton, and Carthage fire departments.
Tumbledown Mountain in Franklin County has a summit of 931m and is considered a popular hiking spot with a variety of routes to test different capabilities.
