A hiker is recovering after being rescued from a cave in Jeffersonville.

Around 3 p.m. Tuesday, crews were called to Smugglers' Notch after a woman fell 10 feet into a rocky hole. Fire officials believe she was alone, but other hikers heard her cries for help.

Crews say the rocky terrain complicated the rescue. It took them just under an hour to hoist her to safety.
