HARTS LOCATION, N.H. (AP) - A man ice climbing on cliffs in New Hampshire has been taken to a hospital after he fell about 30 feet and was rescued by other climbers and emergency responders.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 24-year-old Kevin Garcia, of Providence, Rhode Island, was climbing at Frankenstein Cliffs on Saturday when he fell from near the top of a route called Pegasus and continued falling until his rope stopped him.

The department says Garcia lost consciousness then came to and was lowered safely to the ground by other climbers; he was placed on a litter and taken to a parking lot, where an ambulance took him to Memorial Hospital in North Conway, New Hampshire.

A hospital spokeswoman says she didn’t have an update Saturday night on his condition.
