    A hiker in Maine had to be rescued by a U.S. Coast Guard crew based on Cape Cod on Saturday, after falling from a cliff.

    Coast Guard officials said the man fell from an 80-foot cliff at Acadia National Park at about 1:45 p.m.

    Rescue crews at the park rappelled down the cliff to provide medical assistance, but called the Coast Guard to meet them at a landing zone to transfer the man out of the area.

    Coast Guard crews on the Cape landed in a ball field in Bar Harbor where they picked the hiker up in a MH-60 helicopter and transferred him to an ambulance.

    The hiker was then taken Mount Desert Island Hospital where he was reported to have an arm and leg injury.
