An underage hiker who was injured while climbing Mount Olympus in central Greece is well in his health, the hospital where he was transferred said in a statement Saturday.

The man, identified only as a young student, was injured when he fell while crossing the Kangelia path. It was not clear whether the man was hiking alone or with a group.

Two crews from the Hellenic Rescue Team (EMAK), and local climbing groups participated in the search and rescue operation, along with a Super Puma helicopter.
