SPRINGDALE, Utah — Utah officials say a hiker survived a 100-foot (30.5-meter) fall at Zion National Park.

Officials said Wednesday that the man was in critical condition at a hospital.

Officials say he was coming down from a mountain Tuesday when he slipped near the summit and fell into a narrow ravine. A friend that saw the fall reported it to park officials.

Park medics say it took them nearly two hours to reach the hiker. A rescue team helped lower the man to an area where a helicopter could land.
