SALT LAKE CITY — Search and rescue teams helped an injured man down Mount Olympus on Tuesday night.
About 6:40 p.m., police responded to a call of an injured hiker on the West Slabs trail, according to Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.
A 23-year-old man was hiking with his 27-year-old friend. As they were heading down the trail, a boulder came loose and injured the younger man's lower leg. Unable to make it down the mountain, the man called his family, who contacted police.
Search and rescue teams were able to reach the man and bring him down the mountain by 11 p.m. He did not require any medical attention, Hoyal said.
