AZ: Injured bear hunter airlifted from canyon

September 3, 2013

From PaysonRoundup.com

A bear hunt turned disastrous for several Valley hunters Saturday after one member of the group tumbled into a canyon, badly mangling his leg.
A 13-year-old boy was scoping a way into Chevelon Canyon with his father and another hunter after they had reportedly chased a black bear into the canyon after hiking several miles. When a rock gave way, the teen lost his footing, sending him 20-plus feet down steep limestone cliffs west of Forest Lakes on the Mogollon Rim.
The teen came to a stop high above the canyon floor, pinned up next to a log, his right leg visibly broken, said a hiker in the area.  The boy had to be flown to a medical trauma center in the Phoenix area for treatment of serious head, facial and leg injuries.
