JARRETTSVILLE, Md. (AP) - A 16-year-old boy who fell while climbing at Rocks State Park has been rescued and is expected to survive.
    
Authorities say the teen fell near the King and Queen's Seat rock formation near Jarrettsville on Monday afternoon.
    
Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says the boy, who was airlifted to a hospital, is expected to live.
    
Thomson says the teen was free-climbing while on a family outing when he slipped and fell 12 to 15 feet.
    
Authorities say rescuers, including a technical rope rescue team with Hartford County, responded to the scene. Officials say it took crews about an hour to rescue the boy from the area.
