long day for rescuer's in RMNP

(CBS4) ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. A rescue was underway late Saturday afternoon on top of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.

A man fell 60 feet while climbing the fourteener Saturday morning.

Rescuers said the man was in stable condition.

Crews were trying to find a safe landing location for a helicopter to pick up the injured climber. If the copter couldn't reach the hiker, crews were planning on carry him all the way down the mountain

A 36 year-old male hiker lost his footing and fell approximately 60 feet along the Keyhole Route near the Trough on Longs Peak this morning and sustained multiple injuries. Park rangers and a paramedic are currently on scene with the patient who is in stable condition. A technical rescue is in progress to move the patient to an area where a helicopter can safely land to transport him to a medical facility for treatment. Members of Rocky Mountain Rescue and Larimer County Search
and Rescue are assisting with the current rescue operations. In two
separate rescue incidents earlier this morning, hikers were also flown out of the Longs Peak area by helicopter for medical treatment. A 57 year-old female, suffering from an altitude related illness, was taken to Boulder Community Hospital. A 68 year-old male sustained a leg injury on the Longs Peak Trail and was flown to St. Anthony’s Hospital.
