BOONE, County — A Boone man was injured after he fell from a cliff at Ledges State Park over the weekend.

According to the Ames Tribune, 18-year-old McCain Kester fell more than 30-feet while hiking the Lost Lake Trail Sunday.

We know paramedics transported him by helicopter to Des Moines, but we don’t know his condition.

He’s the second person in just over a week to fall from a cliff in the area. On June 20th a Nevada woman was injured after falling 40-feet from the same trail.
