Sleepwalking camper injured in cliff fall in Kentucky
SLADE, Ky. (AP) — Rescue crews say an Ohio man who was camping with friends in central Kentucky’s Red River Gorge is recovering after falling from a cliff while sleepwalking.
Powell County Emergency Management told WKYT-TV that the group had set up camp near Grey’s Arch Trail and the man’s friends called for help after realizing that he was missing in the middle of the night.
Wolfe County rope technician John May told the station the Cincinnati man, whose name wasn’t released, fell about 60 feet early Thursday and landed in an area with several large boulders.
He called it a “miracle” that the man survived. May said the camper suffered a head injury, a dislocated shoulder and a fractured leg, but he’s expected to make a full recovery.
