Boy Rescued Following Fall Into Canyon

Mount Rainier National Park

National Park News

On the afternoon of August 8th, a 13-year-old boy fell 40 feet into the narrow box canyon chasm below the popular viewpoint at Christine Falls. Miraculously, he suffered only a broken arm in the far. Rangers treated him at the scene, set up a technical high-angle raising system, lifted him out, and transported him to Morton General Hospital. Eighteen people were involved in the operation. The incident commander of this rescue was Stefan Lofgren.
