Response to 2004 Highpointers Club Articles
Many thanks to Paul M. for passing this along.
Dateline news show on NBC on sunday May 23 they had a pretty lengthy news summary of the rescue on Mt Hood from a couple of years ago ? This was one where people slid down into the bergschrund on the South side. Then the Air Force helicopter crashed etc. They talked about the Highpointers who had summited then got swept in with the other group . They showed the Highpointer wallet card with all the summits etc. In the end I believe 2 or 3 people got killed. No one in the helicopter was killed. The video of the helicopter crashing was unbelievable.
