Update: Kyle Moore from the Seattle Fire Department told The Seattle Times that the man has been taken to Harborview Medical Center and is expected to be okay. He was in the ravine all night, and told firefighters he had some leg pain. Moore said the man was dehydrated but didn’t appear to have any broken bones.

Earlier: A man fell 60 feet from a bluff at Carkeek Park, according to a report from KIRO-TV. The man is 48 years old and rescuers had to descend into a ravine to get him out. He is now out of the ravine, and a live video stream from KIRO showed him being carried on a backboard out of the park and to the hospital. We’ll update with new information when it becomes available.
