GILA MOUNTAINS — A hunter spent Friday night at a makeshift campsite in the Gila Mountains after he broke his left leg and injured his knee in a fall.

Shane Howard, 35, was flown out of a remote region of the Gila Mountains known as Grapevine early Saturday morning by an Arizona Department of Public Safety Ranger helicopter and taken to the Mt. Graham Regional Medical Center. The area is north of the Safford Mine and is approximately 12 miles northeast of Pima.

Howard fell approximately 10 feet off a bluff and broke his left leg.
