Guardian Angel team rescues climbers on Mount Hood
Guardian Angel Reserve Citizen Airmen with the 304th Rescue Squadron, Portland, Oregon, tend to a distressed climber Feb. 13, 2018 located about 10,500 feet up Oregon’s tallest mountain, Mount Hood. The hikers had been climbing near the peak of Oregon’s tallest mountain when they faced falling rocks and ice, resulting in one member falling approximately 1,000 feet. Due to the 304th’s assistance, three of the four hikers who called for help made it down safely. Unfortunately, the fallen climber did not survive, despite the effort of fellow hikers and rescue crews to save his life. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj. Christopher Bernard)
