Response to September 2004 Accidents/Rescues

 

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and the Army National Guard rescued a climber from Mount Hood on Saturday after the man fell into a 15-foot crevasse and sprained an ankle.
The man, whose name was not available, climbed to the top of the crevasse to an icy patch, where three other people on the mountain saw him, said Joel Manley, a spokesman for the sheriff's office. Although the three couldn't get to the injured climber because of the ice, they used a cell phone to call for help.
