The man apparently fell into the water and was then swept into a cave underneath the cliff, Baxter said.

Emergency crews arrived on scene and were able to rescue the man through a hole in the cave, using a ladder.

The victim was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, according to Baxter.
