Teen hiker dies on Colorado peak

A young, but experienced hiker is dead after a fall on one of Colorado's 14,000 foot mountains.  Kevin Hayne, 18, of Highlands Ranch slipped and fell into a ravine Tuesday on Little Bear Peak.

Hayne and a friend were rappelling down the side of the mountain when Hayne fell.  A helicopter was sent from Buckley Air Force Base and had to make a hard landing when one of the blades scraped the rough terrain in the area.  No one on the chopper was hurt.
