On Thrusday, 11-04-04, at 11:36 a.m., the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a cell phone emergency call from a two person climbing party on Mt. Hood. This reporting subject states he and his male climbing companion had fallen an estimated 100 ft. into a crevass at the bottom of the Sandy Head Wall, at the Sandy Glacier, on Mt. Hood.

My sympathies go out to the families and the survivors as well. Here are more details that I found.

Just listened to the 911 tape here at work.

The guy who survived tells the operator that his helmet is busted into about 50 pieces. He couldn't tell her how far they had fallen because he felt he was lucky to be concious.
