NORTH HUNTINGDON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — An elderly man was rescued after falling out of a window at a Westmoreland County nursing home and tumbling down a hillside this afternoon.

Firefighters were called around 1 p.m. to rescue the man at the Walden’s View Senior Living facility, off of Route 30.

The man reportedly fell out of a window and then rolled about 30 feet down a hillside.

Crews working to rescue the man lowered a basket stretcher down the hillside to get the man back to safety.
