"A 15-year-old climber fell about 100 feet down a mine shaft after his rope snapped on Thursday morning, the Golden Fire Department said.

The incident happened about 10:20 a.m. in the 100 block of South Rooney Road near West Colfax Avenue and Interstate 70. The shaft is on the hogback in the foothills of Jefferson County, which is considered open space.

At roughly 2:10 p.m., the teen was rescued from the mine shaft. A tweet by posted by West Metro Fire at 2:14 p.m. indicated the boy is conscious and talking with rescuers."

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
