ANCHORAGE, Alaska -

A teenager who fell about 100 feet on a mountain near Palmer was lifted to safety by a LifeMed Alaska helicopter.

Alaska State Troopers say the youth was injured Tuesday night on Lazy Mountain but that his injuries were not life-threatening.

The nearly 3,700-foot peak is popular with hikers and runners. The Matanuska-Susitna Borough says on its website that climbing without cleats is dangerous because of icy conditions.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the injured teenager may have suffered a broken leg.
