BELTON, Texas (KWTX) A man was injured in a fall Friday afternoon at a Central Texas park.

First responders were sent to Chalk Ridge Falls Park along the Lampasas River adjacent to Stillhouse Hollow Lake just after 3 p.m. Friday.

The man fell in the area of a cable bridge on a trail in the park and suffered an injury to his lower left leg.

Rescuers had to carry the man out for most of the way without using a stretcher or litter because of the rough terrain.

A medical helicopter was requested, but the requested was later cancelled.

Further details weren't immediately available.
