Oregon:Rescuers bringing body down from Mt. Hood

A body that may be that of a Salem,Ore.,climber who has been missing since June 22 was being brought down Oregon's Mount Hood on Sunday.


PORTLAND, Ore. — Searchers are carrying a body down Mount Hood from the glacier where it was spotted by a helicopter crew looking for a missing climber.

Sgt. Dan Kraus of the Clackamas County Sheriff's office says the recovery team set out around 3 a.m. Sunday and reached the body around 11 a.m.

He expects them to complete their climb by 9 p.m.

Officials believe the body is likely Kinley Adams, a 59-year-old Salem dentist who failed to return June 22 from a climb on the west side of Oregon's tallest mountain.

Kraus says they won't be able to identify him until the body is transferred to the medical examiner.

The recovery operation included 30 climbers and a few dozen support personnel.

The body had to be pulled down the mountain on a stretcher, through snow, ice and rapidly changing weather.

Kraus says it was a very challenging operation.

Adams was an experienced climber who had been making frequent trips to Mount Hood in preparation for a trip to Nepal. 

He was reported missing June 22. His vehicle was found on the mountain at Timberline Lodge.AP

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
