Polish Soldier fourth Mount Hood climbing fatality this season


Crews on Mount Hood say the body of 32-year-old Polish soldier Sebastian Kinasiewicz’s body is in too precarious a place for recovery at this time. The novice climber fell at least 1,500 feet to his death, and was located by the crew of an Oregon Army National Guard helicopter Monday morning. The fatality marks the fourth this season. Experienced Mount Hood climbers say Kinasiewicz had been climbing along a trail known for rock falls this late in the season.
