A hiker is in the hospital tonight after falling. It happened at Snyder Quarry on the west side of Colorado Springs.

El Paso County Search and Rescue tells us the person was with some other people when it happened.

A medical helicopter tried to land, but it couldn't because of the terrain and power lines, so the person was taken to the hospital by an ambulance with a severe head injury.
