Tinley Park man found injured in Lemont embankment, may have been there a day

LEMONT – A Tinley Park man was airlifted to Loyola University Hospital Wednesday after lying for about a day in an embankment near railroad tracks on Main Street between Fourth Street and Wheeler Drive.

The man, whose condition and identity are unknown, apparently fell into the embankment Tuesday while walking on the right-of-way along the railroad tracks, according to Lemont Fire Prevention District Battalion Chief Dave Bettenhausen.

Lemont Police Chief Kevin Shaughnessy said initial reports indicate that the man had dropped his cellphone and was trying to retrieve it when he fell in the embankment.

Police received a call Wednesday from a family member of the man, saying he was missing and that he may have been walking near the tracks, Shaughnessy said.

Police walked the tracks until they found him around 4 p.m., he said.
