DENVER (AP) — Authorities say a 62-year-old man was killed after falling 60 feet in a rock climbing accident in Colorado.
Karlyn Tilley, a spokeswoman for the Golden Fire Department, tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/10EYRgW ) the man was climbing with his two adult children while using technical gear at a popular cliff about 20 miles west of Denver. She says he fell at about 1 p.m. Saturday.
About a dozen climbers who were nearby helped with the rescue and brought the man off the mountain within an hour of the fall.
Tilley says the man was unresponsive and not breathing when paramedics arrived.

At least 40 students got sick and 27 of them were taken to the hospital. Officials are now taking a look at what the kids ate for lunch.
It may be the season of giving, but unlike years past, the giving spirit is in short supply this year. The Salvation Army says donations at its Red Kettles are down by nearly one-third and it's not alone.
