Firefighter attempting to rescue woman who was stuck on ledge found himself stuck as well
An evening hike took a wrong turn for two hikers Sunday night on Mont Wright near Stoneham, north of Quebec City.
Two women in their twenties went for a hike on a path when one of them fell down a slope and was hurt.
The other tried to help her friend but found herself stuck on a ledge.
Firefighters were able to rescue the woman who was hurt. She is expected to recover.
However, a firefighter attempting to rescue the second stuck woman found himself stuck as well.
Quebec provincial police were called in at around 8 p.m. to rescue the firefighter and the women.
Police brought in a helicopter to bring the pair to safety. The operation wrapped up just after 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.
Everyone is doing fine.
