Man injured in gorges at Buttermilk Falls

Man injured in gorges at Buttermilk Falls

A man was working on his yard Thursday afternoon when he took a tumble down the gorges at Buttermilk Falls.

The man in his 70’s fell about 40 feet down and suffered minor injuries from the fall just after 2 p.m. Thursday.

The man fell into a gorge behind his property on Comfort Road in the town of Danby.

Due to the steep terrain and poor weather conditions, rescue crews assembled a rope team to get the man out. Crews used a rope system to lower themsevles down to the victim, package him in a basket, and then raised him up to an awaiting ambulance.

Ithaca Fire Lt. Tom Basher says the Ithaca and Danby Fire Departments worked together to get the man out safely, with help from Bangs Ambulance.
