ATLANTA (AP) — A state helicopter has rescued a hiker who broke several bones during a fall in Dawson County.

WSB-TV reports the 22-year-old hiker was injured Friday when he fell 25 feet while walking along Cochran Falls in Dawson County.

He was then transferred to a medical helicopter and flown to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.
