Rescues Called In Barton Creek Greenbelt

Updated: Sunday, June 15 2014, 06:23 PM CDT

Two people needed to be rescued in the Barton Creek greenbelt Sunday afternoon.

Around 3:30 p.m. Austin/Travis County EMS were called in to help a woman on the trails.

They walked her out with a minor injury to her knee.

Then they had to go back down about a half a mile to rescue a man who rolled his ankle.

Rescue calls on the greenbelt -- especially on the weekends -- happen more often than you might think.

And rescuers say with more people out -- it's a warning to be careful -- slow down and take your time while out and about.
