Rope Rescue in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada


Hamilton firefighters used ropes and harnesses to rescue a couple stuck down an escarpment embankment near the Devil’s Punchbowl Sunday afternoon.

District Chief Mark Middleton said a man and woman in their thirties were exploring in the area and became stuck about 3.6 metres below an escarpment trail.

“People should be particularly careful hiking this time of year, because the weather conditions make the trails very slippery,” he said.

The call came in at around 2:30 p.m. and firefighters had the couple out within an hour.
