COLCHESTER, Vt., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Police in Vermont said a man became stuck on some rock ledges after dropping his computer about 100 feet and attempting to retrieve it.

Colchester police said Randy Lamore, 42, of Winooski dropped his computer while walking along the railroad tracks near the Gorge Road power dam and the device landed about 100 feet down on the bank of the Winooski River, WCAX-TV, Burlington, reported Tuesday.

Police said Lamore, who had been drinking, attempted to climb down to retrieve his computer, but became stuck on ledges in thick underbrush.

The man called 911 on his cellphone and it took about half an hour for rescuers to find him and an hour to execute the rescue.

Police said Lamore was not injured.
