6/17 Helicopter Rescue on Mount Adams: Pics Wanted
« on: 06/19/17, 10:01 AM »

On 6/17, we helped a guy who took a long fall and was injured on the South Side of Mount Adams.  He was picked up just below the lunch counter by an Army helicopter.  I have been in touch with the pilots and they would love pictures of the rescue if anyone has them? 

The guy who fell is doing well and is very appreciative for all the help.

If you are reading this and gave us a down jacket, you may have already gotten a call from someone trying to return it, but if not, let me know and I will try and track it down and get it back to you.  Thanks to everyone else who helped out.

I think my friend Will may have been out there! (maybe you already know him?)...

Here is one photo on his instagram that he took of the rescue, he might have more: https://www.instagram.com/willscharff/

Thanks!  Yes, Will was super helpful and his InReach was what allowed us to communication with the Forest Service.
