Mt. Rainier National Park rescuers responded to a 911 call last Sunday about a skier who had fallen into a crevasse on the Emmons Glacier on Mt. Rainier. The victim was part of a group that had successfully climbed the peak earlier that morning. When rescuers descended into the crevasse, they found the skier unresponsive.
