BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities rescued a man and his 15-year-old daughter on a hunting trip after an all-terrain vehicle rolled, injuring the man in a remote area of western Idaho.

KBOI-TV reports that authorities with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office say they received a report of a hunter who had broken his ankle near Dodson Pass on Sunday night.

Authorities mounted a search but it was called off that night because of the rugged terrain and the darkness. The man and the girl were located the next morning in a rocky ravine.

Authorities say the teenager was not injured, and she was taking care of her father. The man was transported by helicopter to the hospital.
