EVANS, NY (WKBW) - Erie County Sheriff's Air One helicopter made a daring rescue Tuesday morning in 18 Mile Creek near the Eden and Evans Town border.

A man had apparently jumped from 18 Mile Creek Bridge into the creek below, falling over 150 feet.

Erie County Sheriff's Air One responded to the call and located the man at the bottom of the gorge in the creek. Air One lifted the man to a staging area where they transferred the patient to Mercy Flight who flew him to ECMC where he is in critical condition.
