NH ice climber critical after Crawford Notch fall

Posted: Updated:

HART'S LOCATION, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game says a 55-year-old ice climber is in critical, but stable condition following a fall in Crawford Notch State Park in Hart's Location.

Officials say Eric Scoville, of New Boston, fell about 70 feet Saturday afternoon while climbing alone and un-roped at Frankenstein Cliff.

Other climbers at the scene at the time assessed Scoville's injuries, called for emergency response and carried him in a litter about a half mile to a parking area where he was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in North Conway. He was later flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon for treatment.
