New Hampshire authorities say a rock climber fell about 50 feet in the Franconia Notch area and suffered life-threatening injuries.
Conservation officers say a 20-year-old man was climbing on the Cannon Cliffs when he fell Sunday. The climber was unconscious and stuck on a ledge just halfway up the cliff.
A helicopter took the man to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment.
The climber's name hasn't been released. His condition wasn't immediately known Monday.
