Woman injured on Mount St. Helens airlifted by rescuers

STEVENSON, Skamania County (AP) — 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 28-year-old Alana McCammon 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 25-year-old Kyle Knight 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.
