Rescuers move boulder to free Colorado trapped climber
BOULDER — Several dozen rescuers moved a boulder the size of a washing machine to free a rock climber who was pinned when the boulder shifted.
Police say Andrew Chapman got his leg pinned Thursday while climbing Realization Point Trail. He was freed several hours later after his girlfriend, who was climbing with him, notified authorities.
The Boulder County Sheriff's Office says Chapman's injuries are not life-threatening.
In 2003, climber Aron Ralston hiked into a Utah canyon without telling anyone his plans. He became trapped by a boulder and was forced to cut off his own arm to free himself. Ralston went on to detail his struggles in a book. His story was later adapted into "127 Hours."
