A hiker with serious injuries was rescued from the Colorado National Monument on Monday.

According to the National Park Service, two people were hiking from the upper trailhead in No Thoroughfare Canyon. They had reached a rugged area above the second waterfall when a 41-year-old man fell approximately 30 feet. Because of the narrow and rugged canyon, the man's companion had to hike about 20 minutes before he was able to call 911 for help.
