Two taken to hospital after falling off ledge in Dunn County


Dunn County (WQOW) - A man and his wife were taken to a hospital after falling off the edge of a dam.

It happened Monday afternoon at the Elk Creek Lake Dam near the Eau Claire/Dunn County line.  A relative says the man lives on a nearby property, and was looking for good spots to fish. He lost his footing and fell about 12 to 15 feet, landing on a ledge. Rescue crews had a difficult time trying to reach the man because of the terrain. Mayo One was called in to help, but was not needed. The man's wife tried to help him and stumbled.  She was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.  There's no word on her husband's condition.
