WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio (WJW) — A man was rescued last Friday after falling 75-to-100-feet down a cliff onto the Chagrin River bank below, firefighters report.

The 27-year-old man, who was injured and unable to move, called 911 and a whole slew of first responders, including Willoughby Hills Fire Department and Willoughby Hills Police Department, headed to the area.
