AMESTOWN, Ky. — Authorities say a teenager was hospitalized but alive after falling more than 200 feet from a cliff in south-central Kentucky.

News outlets report the 17-year-old boy was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. South Russell Fire Chief Roger Dale Coffee tells WKYT-TV the teenager was with his family Sunday when he fell from an overlook near the Wolf Creek Dam in Russell County.

Coffee says he fell from the Lake Cumberland overlook and had a broken leg and several cuts. He was close to the edge when he slipped and fell.

Authorities say two boaters helped bring rescue crews to where the teenager had fallen. Coffee says he was alert and talking to rescuers.
