    Man Suffers Multiple Injuries After Falling While Ice Climbing on Mt. Willard in New Hampshire

    A New Hampshire man suffered multiple injuries Friday afternoon after falling while ice climbing on Mt. Willard in Crawford Notch.

    The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department was notified by 911 just before 2:30 p.m. that the climber had fallen approximately 20 feet and was suspended on a rope.

    The climber, identified as Tom Boydston, 64, of Center Conway, suffered multiple injuries in the fall.

    Authorities said Boydston's climbing partners, along with other climbers in the area, were able to lower him to a safe area until rescue arrived. The rescue was delayed due to the difficult terrain and high winds, sleet, rain and darkness.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officers, Bartlett Fire Rescue services, Twin Mountain Fire Rescue services and Mountain Rescue Service worked together to locate, stabilize and transport Boydston to Memorial Hospital in North Conway where his exact condition remains unclear.
