STEVENSON — A woman who was injured in a fall on Mount St. Helens was airlifted by rescuers Thursday and taken to a Vancouver hospital.
The Skamania County sheriff’s office says Alana McCammon, 28, of Vancouver, fell into a snow cave Wednesday night at about the 7,000-foot level of the volcano in southwest Washington. She was with Kyle Knight, 25, of Petersburg, Alaska.
The sheriff’s office received a call for help and rescuers reached her overnight. She was stabilized until she was airlifted off the mountain by a helicopter at daylight.
McCammon was taken by ambulance to PeaceHealth Medical Center in Vancouver. Spokeswoman Michelle Halfhill says she was admitted in satisfactory condition.
