A helicopter crew took a break from fighting the wildfires in the Big Meadows section of Rocky Mountain National Park on Friday to rescue an injured climber in another part of the park, according to the National Park Service.

The 36-year-old climber from Golden, Colo., plummeted about 40 feet on Sundance Buttress in Lumpy Ridge from a spot about 350 feet up. A guide with Colorado Mountain School was leading another group when he witnessed the accident. The guide lowered the injured climber to the route’s base, and the Grand Canyon Helitak crew short hauled a ranger to the scene.

The victim was evacuated in a “Bauman Bag” dangling beneath the helicopter to a hnearby meadow and then taken to a nearby hospital.
