A rugged rescue: Spokane firefighters and ambulance crews snake their way along a trail below the bluff at High Drive and 29th Avenue after rescuing a man whose vehicle went over the embankment about 6:35 p.m. Tuesday. It took emergency crews about an hour to extricate the man, believed to be in his late teens, from the vehicle. The driver, who’d recently been released from a hospital, apparently had a medical emergency that caused him to black out, police said. A hiker spotted the vehicle, which wasn’t visible from High Drive or Highway 195. The man’s condition was unknown late Tuesday.
