An elderly hiker had to be rescued from the Niagara gorge Thursday afternoon after he suffered a leg injury and couldn’t climb out of the gorge by himself.

The man was hiking alone near Thompson Point when he was injured. He used his cell phone to call for help.

Niagara Helicopters assisted in locating the man and members of the Niagara Falls Fire Department and the Niagara Parks Police High Angle River Team extricated the man from the gorge.

He was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
