HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville firefighters have found a man who got lost in the woods off Hobbs Island Road.
Captain Frank McKenzie said a hiker got lost in the woods behind his house. He called a neighbor and said he couldn’t find his way out to get home. His phone battery is low, but he apparently called 911 and operators were able to ping his spot.
Crews said the man is uninjured.
Crews say there was danger in this rescue because the ground is saturated and trees could fall
