HOCKING HILLS – A man has been rescued from Conckles hollow a park of the Hocking Hills State Preserve.
Just after noon, on 2/12/22, a 911 call came into the Hocking sheriff’s department of a man who had fallen into the cavern. When Hocking’s first responders arrived on the scene they decided the safest way to get the man out of the 100-foot drop was a rope rescue.
According to the reports, the man fell 20 feet, and then slid another 40 feet, from a very icy trail. He was assisted back to the trail with a multi-agency rope rescue from ODNR, Laurelville Fire department, and Hocking EMS.
The man declined medical care after being rescued,
