ATLANTA -- Authorities say a man who fell about 25 feet while hiking on a trail near a north Georgia waterfall is in stable condition.
Dawson County Emergency Services Chief Lanier Swafford tells The Times of Gainesville that the 22-year-old was in stable condition Monday afternoon at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.
A state helicopter rescued the hiker, a Cumming man whose name wasn't released, after Friday's accident near Cochran Falls in Dawson County. Rescuers put the hiker on a stretcher, and a helicopter from the Department of Natural Resources hoisted him into the air.
