EMS and Drumheller Fire Crews responded to a call this afternoon at the Hoodoos.
A visitor to the valley rolled his ankle on top of the Hoodoo Hill and had no way to get down.
The Drumheller Fire Department assisted the EMS crews to transport the patient on a stretcher to the bottom of the hill.
Fire Chief Bruce Wade reported to 99.5 Drum FM that if anyone decides to go hiking in the hills to ensure you are wearing the proper footwear, have plenty of water, stick to your level of comfort and stay on pathways if possible.
Wade noted the valley hills can become very slippery and dangerous from the bentonite after it has rained, so be cautious when taking in the Valley's natural wonders.
