Backpackers tried to save 1 of 2 fallen hikers at Mount Hood, frantic 911 calls show
PORTLAND, Ore. — Backpackers frantically tried to save the life of one of the two young Portland women who apparently fell to their deaths at Mount Hood, a series of calls to Clackamas County 911 show. The hikers diverted shallow creek water from the unconscious yet breathing victim, covered her in a reflective blanket for warmth, spoke to her to urge her to live and performed cardio pulmonary resuscitation while coached over the phone by a 911 dispatcher.
