An Orem man was injured when a zip line he was swinging on in Rock Canyon broke Tuesday afternoon.

A group of college-age people set up the zip line near the mouth of the canyon and were taking turns swinging from one end to the other. The line broke as York Gallard, 21, attempted to swing on it.Gallard fell about 20 feet, according to Provo Police Lt. Keith Teuscher.

Provo paramedics treated Gallard at the scene and transported him to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center where he was listed Wednesday in good condition with multiple fractures.
