Slade - A camping trip almost turned deadly, after an unnamed Ohio resident plunged 60 feet over a precipice while sleepwalking.
The incident which occurred last Thursday in Kentucky's Red River Gorge, left his friends fearing the worst when they awoke in the middle of the night and discovered he was missing.
According to reports from WKYT-TV, the man who has a history of sleepwalking, was camping with the group of friends near Grey's Arch Trail before he disappeared. The frantic group then contacted the authorities at 1:30 a.m. in an effort to locate the missing camper.
Upon scouting the zone, his friends and the rescue crew discovered the Cincinnati resident approximately 60 feet below, in a precipice populated with large boulders. Also according to reports, it took rescue workers in excess of four hours to make their way down and carefully lift the man to safety.
Wolfe County rope technician John May, told the television station, “[The camper] suffered a head injury, a dislocated shoulder and a fractured leg, but he's expected to make a full recovery."
"If he had hit one of the boulders, certainly in my opinion it would have had a different outcome. So it’s very fortunate he survived this. From what we’ve been told, he should make a full recovery. It’s quite remarkable", said May.
