     It took hours to bring out a fall victim in the Pocket Wilderness.
     The Mowbray Volunteer Fire Department got a call around 3:30 this afternoon that a hiker fell at the foot of the mountain.
     They found a 28-year-old male with serious injuries.
     He was swinging from a rope trying to hit some water, But landed on the rocks instead.
     Amy Maxwell from Hamilton County Emergency Services told us "They are packaging the patient and will be carrying him out.  Now they're about one and a half to two miles into the woods, so the extraction process is going to be quite extensive  mainly because of the rough terrain and also the injuries that he sustained to try and make him as stable as possible."
