Climber Falls at Ragged Mountain in Southington

A climber reportedly fell down 15 feet onto jagged rocks at Ragged Mountain in Southington Saturday afternoon, fire officials said.

The person was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries, crews said.

Officials said the entire rescue took about an hour. No first responders were injured during the rescue.
