Palo Alto climber hurt in Yosemite fall
April 22, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK — Authorities say a rock climber at Yosemite National Park had to be rescued by helicopter after falling 30 feet and suffering major injuries.

The 26-year-old man from Palo Alto fell before noon on Sunday while climbing with a partner on the park’s Cathedral range. The California Highway Patrol says park officials asked the CHP to fly a pair of Yosemite Search and Rescue specialists to the injured man.

The helicopter took him to the park’s floor at El Capitan Meadow. Another helicopter waiting there then took him to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.

Officer Johnny Fisher of the California Highway Patrol says this was the second helicopter rescue in Yosemite within two weeks.
