Fairfax County Fire and Rescue is working to rescue a person “trapped on the rocks” near a trail in Scott’s Run Nature Preserve.
The “low-angle rescue” was underway as of 4:50 p.m., according to the fire department’s Twitter account. So far there’s no word on the nature of the patient’s injuries, though initial reports suggest that the patient was found near a creek and rescuers are worried about him or her becoming hypothermic.
An ATV, a stokes basket and spotlights are reportedly being utilized as part of the rescue operation.
The nature preserve abuts Georgetown Pike, the Capital Beltway and the Potomac River.
Update at 5:30 p.m. — The victim has been carried out of the woods, according to scanner traffic.
