MADRID, Iowa (AP) -- A second person in nine days has fallen from a cliff in a central Iowa state park.

The Des Moines Register reports authorities responded to a call from a man who said a friend had fallen from a cliff at Ledges State Park in Madrid Sunday. McCain Kester was rescued and flown to a Des Moines hospital. The newspaper said his condition is not immediately known.

According to officials, 19-year-old Shannon Novak survived a 40-foot fall from a cliff at the same state park on June 20th. Officials said she lost her footing and fell onto a ledge. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries to her back and ankle.
