The 19-year-old had to be rescued by the Irish Coastguard helicopter from Dublin after the fall from the Bloody Bridge.
It's thought the man was camping in the area when he fell 40 feet into shallow water.
He was winched to safety by the helicopter and taken to Daisy Hill Hosptial in Newry before he was transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.
Coastguard watch officer, Ryan Gray said the man was with a group of others when the incident happened at around 2.45am on Sunday morning.
The South Down Coastguard team, as well as Newcastle Lifeboat and the Mourne Mountain Rescue team were all involved in the rescue.
