Foresthill teen was rescued after falling off a cliff Tuesday.
At 1:32 p.m., deputies with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office were called to assist a juvenile, 17-year-old Tyler Grandy, who had apparently fallen down a steep hill behind Worton’s Market in Foresthill. It was reported that two juveniles were moving a picnic table at a seating area behind the market when one of the teens slipped and fell 250 feet into the canyon.
Placer Sheriff’s deputies, along with Foresthill Fire and California Highway Patrol Air Support, combined efforts to rescue Grandy. A Foresthill firefighter was lowered down the hillside and was able to connect Grandy to a rescue harness before he was able to be lifted off the hillside. Due to Grandy’s location, the helicopter had to re-configure their hoist system. Grandy was in the canyon area approximately two hours before he was lifted out using the helicopter’s hoisting system. He suffered a moderate leg injury and head injury, but at the time he was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center he was alert and talking to paramedics in Foresthill, CA.
