Hiker Rescued On Mt. Adams

A hiker who fell and injured himself on Mt. Adams on Sunday was rescued.  The Yakima County Sheriff’s Office says the 39-year-old hiker was taken to Skyline Hospital in White Salmon early Monday.  The man had called for help at about 1 p.m. on Sunday after falling in boulders on Mt. Adams and possibly breaking his leg and ribs.  The rescue took more than 15 hours, as a storm system prevented a helicopter rescue.  Several wilderness rangers went in on foot to bring the man down the mountain.
