Fire crews were called to help locate a hiker who suffered a possible broken ankle after a fall in Komoka Provincial Park.

Crews arrived at the park shortly after 6:40 p.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters found the patient located on the banks of the Thames River. Marine units had to be dispatched from the Oxford Street Bridge to extract the patient.

A local resident helped with the use of his tractor to bring the patient up to the road.
