FISHKILL, N.Y. – Multiple agencies chipped in to rescue a construction worker whose Jeep had fallen down an embankment and turned over on Mount Beacon Friday morning, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The man's Jeep fell about 65 feet into a creek and a coworker driving behind him alerted authorities, the Journal said.

Rescuing the man, who was  taken to St. Luke's-Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh with neck-and-back injuries, was a joint effort between Beacon and Fishkill first responders and State Park Police, reported the Journal.
