Hiking Accident

A hiking accident occurred before noon today (April 18) as a Covenant College student slipped off of a trail on the western edge of the Lookout Mountain Battle­field Trail System. Hamilton and Dade first responders and Hamilton County cliff & cave rescue teams assisted with her extraction. The hiker was able to use her cell phone to call for assistance and we have received reports from onsite authorities that there were no serious injuries.

 

Officials are on site and Covenant representatives are actively supporting efforts to understand the circumstances of the accident and what care is needed moving forward.
