A surveyor was injured Thursday afternoon when he fell down a hillside in Mt. Lebanon, authorities said.

The surveyor was holding one end of a tape measure in a wooded area above the dead-end on Forest Glen Drive when he tumbled about 50 feet into a culvert between the hilltop and road at about 2 p.m., said Mt. Lebanon Fire Department Deputy Chief Joe Thuransky.

The culvert was only about 5 feet below Forest Glen, so police, firefighters and medics from Medical Rescue Team South were able to reach the man from there. He was taken to St. Clair Hospital with unspecified injuries, Thuransky said.
