Climber Falls on Mt. Hood -
October 19, 2008

On Sunday, October 19th Portland Mountain Rescue assisted in air evacuation of an injured climber on Mt Hood. Clackamas County Sheriff's Office alerted PMR on Sunday afternoon that a man that had fallen approximately 300 feet from the Hogsback coming to rest near Crater Rock. The man was descending the mountain when he slipped and fell. Another climber had witnessed the accident, placed a call to 911 and stayed with the injured man until help could arrive.

A PMR rescue team along with an AMR Reach and Treat team located the injured climber, assessed his conditions and began administering first aid. Once stabilized, the man was loaded into an Oregon National Guard 1042nd helicopter and flown to OHSU.
