DENVER (AP) — Authorities say a 62-year-old man was killed after falling 60 feet in a rock climbing accident in Colorado.
Karlyn Tilley, a spokeswoman for the Golden Fire Department, tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/10EYRgW ) the man was climbing with his two adult children while using technical gear at a popular cliff about 20 miles west of Denver. She says he fell at about 1 p.m. Saturday.
About a dozen climbers who were nearby helped with the rescue and brought the man off the mountain within an hour of the fall.
Tilley says the man was unresponsive and not breathing when paramedics arrived.
