Climber rescued from volcanic crevice on Mt. Hood

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A mountain climber has been rescued and will survive after falling into a volcanic crevice near the summit of Mt. Hood. Caroline Sundbaum, of Portland, injured her shoulder in Friday’s fall but was able to tie herself to a rope that was lowered to her by another climber who witnessed her fall. The crevice — called a fumarole — emits steam and volcanic gases on Mt. Hood, which is an active volcano. The 32-year-old fell about 15 feet (4.6 meters) into the fumarole, which was located at 11,200-foot (3,414-meters) of elevation.
