The Sandy Springs Fire Department said they rescued a driver trapped in a 40-foot-deep ravine.

Fire personnel, along with paramedics from the American Medical Response, responded to call about a car in a ravine Wednesday night, according to a Facebook post. The driver had lost control and plunged into the ravine, becoming trapped in the vehicle.

“SSFD personnel had to deploy a rope system to extricate the patient from the ravine,” the fire department said.

The patient was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.
