A person was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital after a paraglider was stranded on Mount Roberts, according to a Capital City Fire/Rescue Facebook shared Thursday evening.
The person did not report injuries, according to a post shared shortly before 9 p.m., but was taken to BRH for further evaluation. Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway helped get crews to the area. The patient and crew had made it off the mountain as of 11:11 p.m., according to a comment by CCFR on the post that initially shared news of the stranded glider.
The glider has been left on the side of the mountain, according to CCFR, and it will be retrieved at some point over the next few days. In the meantime, it will be visible.
