SANDY — Search and rescue crews responded Sunday to a hiker who fell and injured himself near Bell Canyon Reservoir, according to Sandy Fire Deputy Chief Bruce Cline.
Cline said the man was in the area of a waterfall at Ben Canyon Reservoir, approximately a one-hour hike from the trailhead, when he fell about 10 feet. Cline said it appeared the man had a broken leg, and crews worked to get the man ready to be transported from the trail by helicopter.
Cline said the trail is very popular in Sandy and has seen a lot of foot traffic recently with the cooler temperatures.
"I'm sure this gentleman was just out for a Sunday hike and either took a wrong step or slid off of the trail and injured his leg," Cline said.
The trail is fairly easy up to the reservoir, but Cline said after that it becomes more of a strenuous hike.
