A Chinese tourist was in serious condition Wednesday after tumbling from an overlook near southeastern Utah's Delicate Arch.`
The 27-year-old man from Beijing reportedly fell about 80 feet from atop a trail on the slickrock formation across from the iconic, freestanding red sandstone formation near Moab about 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Arches National Park spokesman Paul Henderson said the victim initially was found below the arch unconscious and bleeding from the head, but soon regained consciousness. However, he then told paramedics that he could not feel his legs.
The man was taken by medical helicopter to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo.
