Durham County emergency workers pulled out a man who fell into a sinkhole at Falls Lake Sunday morning.

A fisherman heard the man's calls for help and called 911.

Redwood Road was closed in October where it crosses over Falls Lake after the hole opened up. Pictures from Chopper 11 then showed warning fencing and cones were set up to keep people back.
