Custer County Search and Rescue officials say a Blackhawk helicopter provided by the Idaho Air National Guard was used to bring Ronald Wallace to safety at about 11:30 a.m. Friday.
Authorities say Wallace sustained the injury on Thursday after a 10-foot fall on the 10,300-foot peak about 8 miles southeast of Stanley.
Idaho Mountain Search & Rescue officials say they didnt receive a call until about 10 p.m. Thursday and so had to wait until morning to make the rescue.
