A man is recovering from minor injuries after rolling his four-wheeler down a bluff near the Verdigris River in Wagoner County. It happened around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday when some friends were trying out their new ATV's. Wagoner County Sheriffâ€™s deputies say the ATVs went off the trail, and one of the men went over a cliff, dropping as much as 20 feet down a muddy bank.
The manâ€™s friend called for help. Sheriff's deputies and the Broken Arrow Fire Department responded. Emergency personnel had to use four-wheelers and some special ropes to get the unidentified ATV rider out. "There was absolutely no way to get a large vehicle, a passenger vehicle in the back. The only accessible routes were by walking or by ATV,â€ says Broken Arrow Fire Captain Gerald Stroup.
The victim was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
