NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Palisades Parkway Police say a 49-year-old man was rescued after he fell down a cliff in Alpine, New Jersey Sunday evening.

Julio Beltran, of Fairview, NJ, had intentionally walked around the bridge wall when he then slipped and fell from the Greenbrook Falls overpass around 6:30 p.m., according to police.

Officers arrived to Henry Hudson Drive, south of the Alpine Boat Basin and saw Beltran and another man, 36-year-old Juan Martinez of Cliffside Park, NJ. Martinez had climbed down to attempt to help Beltran, according to police.

Closter EMS and Rescue and the East Bergen Rappel Team were able to reach Beltran shortly and he was taken by an Air Medevac to Hackensack University Medical Center, where he suffered from multiple injuries.

Rescuers also saved Martinez who was not injured and walked away from the scene.

One firefighter from the Fort Lee FD received minor injuries during the rescue after he fell several feet before his rope line captured him.
