A BASE jumper apparently trying to make it to the floor of an Idaho canyon instead ended up stuck on the canyon wall Tuesday night, KMVT reports. Emergency responders were called to the scene in Twin Falls, where one descended the cliff face to perform a rope rescue, CBS News reports. Witnesses said another man made the same jump but did end up safe on the floor of the canyon. The man who was rescued declined medical attention. (More BASE jumping stories.)
