JACKSON, Wyoming — A 39-year-old Utah man has been rescued by helicopter from Grand Teton Mountain in northwest Wyoming after being injured in a fall.

The National Park Service says Tomasz Misiewicz (MIHS'uh-witz), of Murray, Utah, was nearing the first pitch of the Grand's Lower Exum Ridge around 11 a.m. Sunday when he fell about 20 feet.

Misiewicz was taken by helicopter to safe area and then was transported in an ambulance to St. John's Medical Center in Jackson.
