Crews from several area emergency response units rescued a man from Harney Peak on Saturday afternoon.
According to Steve Baldwin, director of the Custer County Search and Rescue, volunteers from his group, along with the Custer County ambulance, Hill City ambulance and Hill City fire department were called to Harney Peak about 2 p.m.
"A man had fallen right at the base of the stairs leading to the top of the peak and broken his ankle," Baldwin said.
Baldwin said rescue crews had to use a litter to carry the man about a mile down the mountain, where he was loaded onto a trailer pulled by an all-terrain vehicle. The ATV took the patient the rest of the way down to a waiting ambulance.
Baldwin said the rescue effort took about four hours to complete.
Baldwin did not have the name of the man or any further details.
