Seattle Fire initiated a low-angle rope rescue response Wednesday morning to remove a man found injured in the brambles and bushes below Capitol Hill’s Louisa Boren Park.
The green space above Interlaken Park at 15th Ave E and E Galer was filled with Seattle Fire crews, police and onlookers as the victim was placed on a rescue sled in the bushes about 30 feet down the steep embankment.
We have no immediate word on injuries but it was believed the man may have been in the bushes all night long. The initial 911 call reporting somebody moaning below the park came in just after 10:30a. The victim was found naked and was conscious as the rescue crew delivered him to a waiting ambulance.
