CHAMA, N.M. (AP) - State authorities say a 64-year-old man was thrown from his horse in a remote, wilderness area of New Mexico before game wardens rescued him.

New Mexico Department of Game & Fish said Friday that horsebackrider Randy Van Zant, of Chama, was airlfited from a field after breaking his arm.

He had been riding in the 10,000-acre Humphries Wildlife Management Area when his horse was spooked on Nov. 3 and threw him to the ground.

Another rider who was out with Van Zant sought help for him.
