ITMANN- A man was airlifted from Wyoming County after being lost in the woods for hours Thursday night.

Emergency Responders say an Itmann man in his early 40’s called 911 just after 3pm Thursday saying he was lost. About 30 volunteers from Mullens and Pineville Fire Departments, along with Wyoming County Sheriff’s helped out in the search. Volunteers didn’t have an exact location of the victim because his cell phone died. The victim was found by a member of the Mullens Fire Department, they say he had a broken leg. The victim was carried more than a mile out of the woods and flown to CAMC in Charleston for his injuries. Stick with Newswatch as we continue to update you on his condition.
