Person Injured after Fall at Garden of the Gods

Another person is injured at the Garden of the Gods in Saline County, Illinois. The Saline County Sheriff's Office says a man fell this morning near the rock formation known as the Devil's Smokestack.

Authorities say 50-year-old Hines Basse of Germany fell about 15 feet to a ledge. He suffered injuries to his ankle, knee, and leg and was life-flighted to St. Mary's in Evansville.

If you're heading to the park, Sheriff Keith Brown reminds you to wear appropriate clothing and foot wear.
