Dude on night scramble falls in Garden of the Gods

A 19-year-old man suffered serious injuries when he fell from a rock formation at Garden of the Gods Tuesday night.

Police and the fire department responded to a call at 7:31 p.m. They learned two men had climbed a rock formation without safety equipment or a permit.

One of the men fell about 25 feet and was taken to Penrose Main Hospital, where it was reported he had sustained life-threatening injuries, including trauma to his head.
