A miner suffered a leg injury when a rock fell on him Tuesday afternoon at the Pleasant Grove portal of the Enlow Fork Mine in Washington County, emergency dispatchers said.

Firefighters and paramedics were called at 4:39 p.m. to the mine on Pleasant Grove Road in East Finley near the West Virginia border, dispatchers said. The miner was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Wheeling, W.Va.

"It was a minor incident," said Lynn Manning, a spokeswoman for Consol Energy Inc., which owns the mine. "The rock hit the miner on the calf, bruising it. He walked out on his own."
