Hiker rescued in Red River Gorge with the help of cellphone By Dustin Vogt | September 12, 2020 at 11:45 AM EDT - Updated September 12 at 11:45 AM
WOLFE COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) - An injured hiker at the Red River Gorge Friday afternoon was found and rescued thanks to a cellphone GPS signal.
Wolfe County Search & Rescue Team posted on Facebook that they were sent out in response to an injured hiker on the Sheltowee Trace around 3:45 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Late yesterday afternoon, at approximately 3:45 p.m., Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team was deployed in response to an injured hiker on the Sheltowee Trace in the Red River Gorge. The female subject had been hiking with her husband when she slipped and took an awkward fall while descending an exposed piece of sandstone along the trail, injuring her left leg. The team was able to easily obtain a coordinate of the subject’s location from her husband, as he was already a user ...of Gaia GPS, coincidentally the same phone based GPS app. used by the team. The team was able to navigate to the subject’s location between Indian Arch and Cloudsplitter along the Sheltowee Trace, where her leg was then splinted by team Wilderness First Responders. The patient was then packaged in a rescue litter and carried ~2.5 miles out of the woods.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
