A 12 year old boy escaped serious injury Monday afternoon after being caught on a cliff face nearly 200 feet from the ground.
The Lansing Fire Department got a call around 2 p.m. of someone hanging from a cliff in the area of Teeter Road.
First units on scene requested the Ithaca Fire Department rope rescue team.
After a lengthy search of the trails at the end of Teeter Road, crews were finally able to locate the boy between a tree and the face of the cliff.
Ithaca Fire Department’s rope rescue team scaled down the cliff to get to the boy, who was then lowered to safety near train tracks below.
The boy was taken to Cayuga Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.
