Chris Lee is thankful to be alive he and a friend had to be rescued Sunday after a climbing accident near Denver.The pair were 200 feet up a rock wall when a boulder came loose, hit Lee, then landed on his friend.

It took rescuers several hours to pull the men to safety.

Lee suffered a bruised liver, while his friend has several broken bones. "My injury is not going to be any big deal in a week or two, but ... he's going to be having to deal with it for a longer time and it's definitely not a good thing," Lee said.
