SNOQUALMIE, Wash. – A helicopter rescued a badly injured teen off Mount Si after he tumbled 90 feet.
KOMO-TV reported that a second teen also fell, but apparently was not injured and was able to walk out.
The falls occurred Saturday at the so-called “Haystack,” which is the summit of Mount Si. The peak towers over the town of North Bend, about 30 miles east of Seattle.
The condition of the 15-year-old who fell was not immediately known. He reportedly is a student at Burien’s John F. Kennedy Catholic High School. He was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The injured teen was unconscious when rescuers found him but then regained consciousness.
The King County Sheriff’s Office says the teens were part of an outing by the Kennedy cross-country team.
