UPDATE 10:30 P.M.: A man who was stranded in a Magnolia ravine has been rescued and taken to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

ORIGINAL POST:

Seattle fire crews are attempting to rescue a man from a Magnolia ravine tonight.

Fire department spokeswoman Sue Stangl said the man somehow went down a nearly 35-foot ravine located behind an apartment building at 4300 35th Avenue West.

“He’s not complaining of any pain,” Stangl said, adding that she doesn’t know how the man got into the ravine.

Stangl said people living in the apartment building dialed 911 around 9:30 p.m. after hearing the man yelling for help.
