VERLOT -- Rescue crews were busy Monday in the hiking and outdoors areas east of Granite Falls.
The Snohomish County sheriff's helicopter rescue team plucked a 50-year-old man with a back injury off Mount Pilchuck about 4:30 p.m., Lt. Steve Dittoe said. The man's injury had been reported about 3:10 p.m. The man was expected to survive.
Around 4:40 p.m., volunteer firefighters in the Monte Cristo area asked for the sheriff's team's help finding a 13-year-old boy. Initial reports were that the boy was on a rafting trip and seriously hurt his leg, Dittoe said. The boy was with his group in a remote area away from the main road.
The search was ongoing as of 6 p.m. Monday.
