It was a frightening afternoon for a family at Helen Hunt Falls Sunday, after a young boy fell 50 feet while climbing a trail. Colorado Springs Fire Department tells News Five, the 10 year-old boy suffered minor back injuries. Responders used cables to bring him down from the trail after his fall. The rescue operation took close to an hour and a half. Battalion chief, Russ Renck says falls like these are not uncommon this time of year, when there are more people hitting the trails, who are unfamiliar with the terrain.
