Eagle Falls injury

I heard that someone was badly injured at local place where i frequently climb (eagle falls) over the weekend. I heard he was injured bad enough that they called a helicopter in. Has anyone heard on his condition?

Is this the incident?

"Failed rigging was to blame for a rock climber’s 40-foot fall from Eagle Falls Monday evening, resulting in a cross-river rescue by Lewis County Search and Rescue and airlift to Upstate Medical University, Syracuse."

Sure looks like it. With luck, someone knowledgeable of the incident will post some details on the failure of the rigging. Always want to know what to watch out for (or at least justify ourselves with "I wouldn't have made that mistake"). Hope the young lady fully recovers.
