Nevada man rescued from Idaho backcountry

Posted: Updated:
 STANLEY, Idaho (AP) -- A Nevada man has been rescued from the White Cloud Mountains in central Idaho after tumbling about 40 feet down a scree chute and smashing into rocks.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1BdVWi4) that search and rescue teams reached 62-year-old Dennis Dombroski of Reno at about 3 a.m. Monday.

Dombroski and a friend were hiking Sunday near Washington Lake when Dombroski fell and sustained a broken leg, cuts and bruises.

An Idaho Army National Guard helicopter lifted him out of the remote and rugged area.

He was then flown to a hospital in Boise where he was listed in stable condition.
