The Mid-County Fire Protection District said it responded to help the Coffman Bend Fire Department with the rescue around 3:50 p.m. Saturday. A more specific location wasn't released. Crews were able to lower the man down the hill using ropes to an awaiting boat, according to the fire department. The boat took the man to a nearby dock, where a helicopter picked him up and flew him to a hospital in Columbia. A firefighter was also taken to a hospital after they overheated. Their condition is unknown. Crews were able to clear the rescue operation around 6 p.m.
