A Montrose man is recovering in the hospital after falling more than 40 feet while rock climbing.
Pedro Lopez was rock climbing outside of Montrose with his family last Wednesday when he fell and landed on his neck.
The family says he fractured his skull, has multiple back fractures and broke every his neck in two different places.
Lopez was flown to St. Mary's by flight for life after his fall.
On Wednesday, one full week of being hospitalized, Lopez was moved out of ICU but his family says there is still a long road ahead in his recovery process.
"He's getting a little bit better," brother Jason Estrada said. "He still can't walk or stand. Sometimes he doesn't know where he is at or know what happened. They're waiting for the brain swelling to go down to see if they can actually do the surgery on his neck and if they can that will be next week."
If you're interested in donating to help this family out during their hard time you can donate money at any Wells Fargo Bank.
Just tell the teller you'd like to donate to the Pedro Lopez Donation Fund.
The family says all donations will go to helping pay for the medical bills of both the local man and his daughter who suffers from Cerebral Palsy.
