(KSL News)--Rock climbers rescued a base jumper who was blown back into the mountains today in Provo's Rock Canyon.
Witnesses say the man jumped from a cliff, his parachute opened, but then a gust of wind blew him back into the rock. The parachute caught on a ledge. The man managed to stand on a rock just below and wait for help.
Two nearby rock climbers made their way to the man and helped him off the mountain. Fortunately he wasn't injured.
