PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A 10-year-old boy is recovering at an area hospital after falling about 150 feet down an embankment on Mount Hood, according to Hood River dispatch.
Search crews reached the boy early Wednesday morning. He was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to a Portland-area hospital around 3 a.m. Officials said the boy has substantial injuries. He was in serious condition as of Wednesday afternoon.
According to Hood River dispatch, the dad called 911 at 9:06 p.m. The sheriff's office put a plane up and found their location by zoning in on a camp fire the father built to help rescuers find their location.
The two were reportedly hiking a trail near the White River West Sno-Park when the boy fell. They were about 3 miles up the trail from the White River West Sno-Park parking lot.
