A Nashville man fell some 25 feet while climbing a ledge at Burgess Falls State Park Tuesday.

19 year old Caleb Tuck was seriously injured in the fall.

According to a report in the Herald-Citizen of Cookeville, Tuck suffered a broken jaw, a possible broken leg, and other injuries after landing on some rocks.

Members of the Putnam and White County Rescue Squads hiked down to Tuck and then carried him out in a basket.

He was treated at the scene by the Putnam County EMS and later airlifted by helicopter ambulance to a Nashville hospital.
