Deputies with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team responded and with the help of Mt. Hood Ski Patrol and Portland Mountain Rescue, found the victim, a 32-year-old man from Seattle.
The man received medical treatment at the scene. He was then airlifted by the Oregon Air National Guard to a Portland-area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The man’s identity has not been released.
