BOULDER, Colo. — A 27-year-old man was freed from beneath a "washing machine-sized" boulder on Flagstaff Mountain this afternoon thanks to 25 to 30 rescue workers and some creative rescue techniques, officials said.
Andrew Chapman was rock climbing on the mountain with his girlfriend when his leg became pinned under a boulder estimated to weigh 1,800 pounds, Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel said.
