Broken-leg hiker rescued by hours of Dragon's Tooth lugging
The Roanoke Times
More than a dozen Roanoke County rescuers spent hours retrieving a broken-legged hiker from the craggy Dragon's Tooth trail over the weekend, authorities said.
The hiker, a 24-year-old man out for the day with two companions, broke his right leg, just above the ankle, in a fall about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Jennifer Conley Sexton, the county Fire & Rescue spokeswoman, said in a statement. The men were about halfway up the trail's climb and called 911 for help.
