SQUAMISH, British Columbia, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- An extreme jumper was rescued after being stuck in an extreme location on a Canadian mountain Monday, authorities said.
The stranded BASE jumper was spotted stranded on Stawamus Chief Mountain, a popular British Columbia venue for the risky activity, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
BASE stands for the four types of extreme jumping locations: buildings, antennae, spans (bridges), and earth (cliffs).
Rescuers reached the parachutist, who was safe, but stuck on the rock face, after parachuting from the peak of the mountain, Vancouver's CKWX reported.
John Willcox of Squamish Search and Rescue told CKWX the man was not hurt when he got caught in a tree. Willcox said the man lowered himself into a "technical area" where he could not get free on his own.
A Royal Canadian Mounted Police helicopter flew nearby and its crew talked to the man, who signaled he was OK by flashing two thumbs up.
It's the second incident on the mountain in recent weeks, the CBC said. On July 14, rescue crews rappelled down the mountain to rescue another stranded BASE jumper, who sprained an ankle.
