AMES, Iowa (AP) -- An Ames man has been hospitalized after falling 25 feet while hiking at Ledges State Park.

The Ames Tribune reports that 19-year-old Hunter Torgerson slipped Wednesday while hiking with friends along Lost Lake Nature Trail and fell to the rocky bank of the Des Moines River below.

Torgerson was flown to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. A hospital spokesman says he's listed in stable condition Saturday.
