A TEENAGER had to be rescued after falling 10ft from a cliff in Fife, leaving him with possible spinal injuries.
The 14-year-old boy fell down a cliff side at Preston Quarry, Inverkeithing, shortly after 8pm on Saturday night and had to be saved by Fife Fire and Rescue’s heavy rescue unit.
Firemen used a 10ft rope to reach the boy, who was taken to Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline.
A spokesman from Scottish Ambulance said: “We were called to the emergency just after 8pm on Saturday, where a boy aged 14 had fallen down a cliff in Inverkeithing.
“Fire crews were at the scene and managed to rescue him by using a 10ft line to get down.
“It is believed he has sustained spinal injuries, the extent of which is not yet known.”
