Helicopter used in Niagara Gorge rescue

A man is suffering from non-life threatening injuries after being rescued from the Niagara Gorge.

Two fire crews with paramedics responded Saturday night after the male had fallen down and injured his leg.

Though his injuries were described as "nothing too serious" by the Niagara Falls Fire Department, he was unable to get out on his own.

Paramedics treated his leg with a soft splint.

A helicopter was used for removal due to muddy, slippery ground conditions.
