At approximately 2 p.m. Thursday in Rocky Mountain National Park, park
rangers were notified by cellular phone that a 28- year-old male took a
reported 150 foot fall south and west of The Narrows on Longs Peak. This
is on the very northern end of the Keyboard of The Winds.
A ranger was flown to the summit of Longs Peak by a helicopter that was assisting with
operations in the Cow Creek Fire. The ranger hiked down to the man,
reaching him at 4:07 p.m.
The man’s injuries are being assessed, he is conscious and appears to be in stable condition. Rangers are currently
evaluating patient evacuation options.
