Steamboat Springs A 13-year-old boy who was injured Saturday after he slid about 100 feet down a side of Fish Creek Falls has been released from the hospital.
Routt County Search and Rescue Incident Commander Dawn Alperti said the boy, a youth in Steamboat Springs to participate in a Triple Crown tournament, was climbing the south face of Fish Creek Falls at about 10:45 a.m. when he lost his footing and slid down a dirt facing.
Alperti said the boy sustained a minor head injury but was released from the hospital late Saturday or Sunday. The boy and his family, who live out of state, have left the Steamboat area.
The boy was with "about 100 people" when the incident occurred, Alperti said. No other injuries were reported.
Alperti said the boy had crossed over the Fish Creek Falls Bridge to access the south side of the falls.
"People aren't supposed to be over there at all," she said. "There are no trails over there."
The Routt County Sheriff's Office and crews from Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue also responded to the call.
Also on Saturday afternoon, Search and Rescue crews responded to an all-terrain vehicle rollover in North Routt's Whiskey Park.
A 20-year-old Steamboat Springs woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for internal injures after the ATV she was riding rolled over.
"Apparently, she was on a pretty nasty trail when it started to tip over and she jumped off it," Alperti said.
The ATV rolled over the woman and down a hill, she said.
Alperti did not know if the woman was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Alperti would not release the woman's name citing privacy laws. She did not know what condition the woman was in or if she had been released from the hospital.
