A Winder man is recovering after falling off an 80-foot cliff at a Kentucky resort.

The Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team posted on its Facebook page that on March 25 Garrison fell when he was climbing on a deck railing at Cliffview Resort Cabins in Red River Gorge.

Rescuers rappelled down the cliff to save Garrison, and after he was hoisted back up, Garrison was life flighted to the hospital.

According to a GoFundMe set up by his fraternity brothers, Garrison suffered significant injuries to his neck and will have a lengthy recovery.

According to their online wedding page, Garrison and fiancé Katelyn had planned to get married in September.
