The man who fell 100 feet from the summit of McAfee Knob Wednesday is "Pretty banged up, and that's an understatement," according to his son.

His son, Greg Marr Jr. says his father luckily did not sustain any brain or spinal injuries from the fall. But, he has several fractured bones and soft tissue damage.
