BILLINGS - A boy was rescued late Saturday morning by Billings emergency crews after his left knee became lodged in a crevice on the Billings Rims.
Konnar Soft, 13, and two other young boys climbed the Rims but Soft lost his footing, leaving him stuck and yelling for help.
Soft's friend climbed down from the Rims and found a spot to stand while Soft rested his weight on his friend's shoulders.
Soft waited 45 minutes with his knee stuck and his hand resting on top of the sandstone until help arrived.
It took an additional 30 minutes to harness help to scale the Rims and dislodge the boy's knee.
After emergency services were able to secure Soft safely on top of the Rims again, he limped to hug those who assisted him.
Soft was able to leave the scene with only contusions and minor scrapes to his knee.
