BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — A 19-year-old man from Louisville remains at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood after falling while climbing in Boulder Canyon on Sunday.

Rescue crews responded and a medical helicopter was used to airlift Andrew to St. Anthony. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office did not say what condition Andrew is in when it released his identity Monday, only saying he was still in the hospital.
