The Associated Press

BELLINGHAM — The man who was killed in a fall Thursday on Twin Sisters Mountain, near Mount Baker, was identified Monday by the Whatcom County medical examiner as 60-year-old James Patrick Millegan of Seattle.

Millegan died of head and chest trauma, the medical examiner reported.

The Bellingham Herald reports a helicopter was able to reach the site Sunday to recover the body.

The man’s climbing partner says Millegan fell about 100 feet, from the 6,300-foot level of the north mountain.
