Authorities identify husband, wife injured in fall on Mt. Hood

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Authorities have identified a husband and wife who were taken to a Portland hospital after a fall on Mount Hood.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office says 43-year-old Michelle Carlson of Portland suffered two broken ankles and her husband — 39-year-old Brian Carlson — broke a leg.

Members of Portland Mountain Rescue and American Medical Response reached the injured climbers Saturday, helping to stabilize the couple until an Oregon National Guard helicopter airlifted them to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.

A third climber had minor injuries and was not hospitalized.
