What happens to Kili in the book?

When Thorin and his right hand men run up the hill to take out what they assume is the last of the orc army, they fall right into a trap. Almost instantly, the gruesome devils drop Kili’s brother Fili from a high ledge, killing him immediately. Kili takes longer, but the bastards find him.
