Video from the Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team captured the dramatic scene that unfolded on Monday. You could see the hiker holding on to the ledge high above the ground. A rescue team was initially sent from the ground, but after the hiker expressed fears he'd not be able to hold on for long, a helicopter was dispatched.
