Man Falls 40 Feet At Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2012

Climbing on a ledge off the beaten path at Starved Rock turned out bad for a man from the ‘burbs.

Conservation Police say 25-year old Ryan Morris of Tinley Park was climbing off the trails on a ledge in Lone Tree Canyon Sunday afternoon when he fell.  He ended up falling about 40 feet, breaking several bones according to Conservation Sgt. Hank Frazier.

Morris was taken across the Illinois River by Ottawa River Rescue and flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  He’s listed in good condition.
