On December 30th, a teen snowboarder fell 500 ft. while attempting to summit Mt. Hood in Oregon. The teen lost his footing on the Pearly Gates section of the mountain and fell down to an area called Devil’s Kitchen.
Luckily, the boy came out of the situation with only a broken leg. According to news sources, he was found in stable condition when emergency services arrived. We’re wishing him a speedy recovery!
