HIGHLANDS, N.C. — Authorities say a teenager trying to take a picture of a western North Carolina waterfall fell off an 80-foot cliff, but suffered only minor injuries.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Wednesday that the 16-year-old boy’s family was with him at Glen Falls near Highlands.

Highlands Fire Chief James Manley says it took about 30 minutes to extract the teen, who was flown to Mission Hospital in Asheville. The accident happened late Tuesday afternoon.

Manley says the boy had cuts and bruises.
