Man breaks leg on photo safari at Ft. Wetherill

A Barrington man in town to take pictures Monday fell on the rocks at Ft. Wetherill and suffered what appeared to be a broken leg.

Rescuers said that the man, in his 40s, was walking alone on a trail behind the state Department of Environmental Management’s fisheries lab when he apparently lost his footing and fell.

From his cell phone he managed to call rescuers, who carried him from the trail and took him to Newport Hospital, the rescuers said.
