Chris Plant, 18, of Salt Lake City, was in serious condition at LDS Hospital early Wednesday morning, following a fall in Ferguson Canyon near 7600 South. Plant and two companions were standing on top of a 30-foot cliff about 6 p.m. Tuesday when Plant lost his balance, slipped and fell to the bottom, landing on his face, said deputy Sheriff Mike Parr. Plant suffered a compound leg fracture, a possible eye injury, multiple cuts and bruises. LifeFlight ferried about 10 rescuers to the site and took Plant to LDS Hospital.
