A 26-year-old Kamloops man climbing without a rope in an area northeast of Kamloops on Sunday was airlifted to hospital after plummeting 10 metres.
At around 2 p.m., the man was climbing the waterfall with his girlfriend when he fell for undetermined reasons, according to RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned.
Emergency personnel responded to the call 13 kilometres up Jamieson Creek Forest Service Road and found the man suffering serious but non-life threatening injuries with head and body trauma.
B.C. Ambulance paramedics stabilized the man and an aerial medevac transported him to Royal Inland Hospital.
The man remained conscious and alert throughout the ordeal, said Learned.
