A spokesperson for the Mowbray Volunteer Fire Department says they received a call around 11:30 Tuesday morning reporting a high fall at the Deep Creek climbing wall on Old Hotwater Road.
The injured climber was about 1-1.5 miles in the woods from the parking lot.
Due to the muddy, rocky terrain and the distance of travel to the patient into the woods, Mowbray VFD requested additional manpower to help carry the injured climber out of the woods. Dallas Bay VFD, Soddy Daisy FD, Sale Creek VFD, and Walden’s Ridge Emergency Services responded.
