Campbellsville Fire Rescue Special Operations was dispatched to multi victim rope rescue situation with 2 adults and 1 dog over a 300' bluff off of Turkey Bluff Trail at Green River Lake. Rescuers deployed Zodiac 1 and USACE watercraft under the victims location, in the event they fell down the bluff before our arrival. Upon arrival at the accident site, firefighters assessed the situation and had 1 patient approximately 50' down the bluff in a stable situation leaning on a large tree. The second victim and dog was approximately 150' over the bluff on a small sapling approximately 10' from a 100' vertical drop off into Green River Lake. A high angle rope rescue system was set up and a rescuer was lowered down to the victim. The rescuer placed the victim and the dog in a harness. Once the victim was secured, a haul team raised the victim using a compound mechanical advantage system. Once the 1st victim was rescued, the efforts then shifted to the second victim. Another rescuer was lowered down and put the patient in a harness and he was hauled up via mechanical advantage. Both victims and the Black Lab, named Goose, was tired but refused medical transport.

Special Thank You to off duty Bardstown Fire Department Captain Trevor Mattingly, Darrel Wise Green River Stables and mounted rescuers Cody and Casey Carpenter from Lancaster, KY for their assistance in helping with the rescue.
