Climber rescued after fall from cliff on Ragged Mountain in Southington



 — A climber was rescued after a “significant fall” from a cliff Friday night on Ragged Mountain.

Fire crews responded to Ragged Mountain at around 8:30 p.m. for a report of a climber that fell 20 to 30 feet from a cliff. Rescue teams arrived to find the injured climber “semi-conscious” and Life Star helicopter was requested to the scene.

According to Battalion Chief Glenn Dube, a rescue team worked to locate and stabilize the patient and carried the climber half a mile in the dark to a pickup location. Mutual aid was provided from Berlin and Meriden. 

The climber was removed from the woods in a Life Star helicopter and taken to an area hospital. The extent of the injuries and the condition of the victim is unknown.

Further information wasn’t immediately available.
