A New York City man suffered multiple injuries when he fell and tumbled down a snow field in Grand Teton National Park.
Bill Mulligan, 35, tumbled about 150 to 200 feet over snow and rock Saturday morning, suffering cuts to his head and injuries to his right shoulder, abdomen, ribs and left ankle, rangers said Sunday.
The mishap occurred near the Middle Teton at the 10,100-foot level, about 20 miles north of Jackson.
Mulligan was west of Spalding Falls and part of a guided party that was descending from the guide service's high camp.
Five rangers were flown to the area by helicopter, who ascended 600 feet to the victim. He was stabilized, then lowered manually on a evacuation litter, using a series of snow anchors, to Garnet Meadows. He was taken to St. John's Medical Center in Jackson.
It was the third major search and rescue in the park this year.
