A man found hanging upside-down from a climbing wall at Greenway Farms in Hixson has been rescued after a passer-by discovered him this afternoon.

Hamilton County EMS workers received the call shortly before 4 p.m. and found the man hanging from a rope at a remote climbing wall on park property, according to Chattanooga police dispatchers. It was unclear how long he had been hanging on the wall or how he had gotten there.

Dispatchers said the man suffered injuries to his ankles, face, arm and possibly to his back.

He has now been transported to Erlanger hospital, a Hamilton County dispatcher said.
