Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A climber who fell hundreds of feet down Mount Hood was rescued by a helicopter and transported to a Portland hospital.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Deputy Marcus Mendoza told KGW that the 59-year-old Tualatin (TWAL'-uh-tihn) man fell on the south side of Mount Hood about 8:45 a.m. Saturday.

Steve Rollins with Portland Mountain Rescue says Michael Adams slid into a fumarole, which is where steam and sulfur vent from the volcano. Adams was banged up but able to speak. Rescue crews reached him about noon Saturday and he was taken to Legacy Emanuel Hospital.

Adams appeared to have a fractured leg, possible rib fractures and other minor injuries.

Mount Hood, an 11,250-foot peak in the Cascade Range, is about 90 miles east of Portland.
