    A Hiker Fell Into Mount St. Helens Crater

    A hiker fell 500 feet into the crater of Mount St. Helens volcano Monday afternoon.

    He was standing about 5 feet from the edge when the cornice of snow gave way and he fell into the crater.

    Anyway he did not fall completely down to the crater bottom.

    The rescue team had to stop trying to get to the hiker Monday night because of the darkness, air turbulence and falling rocks.

    They believe the hiker is still alive and hope that they will be able to save him.

    Mount St. Helens is an active volcano.

    An active volcano is a volcano that usually erupts.

    There are about 800 active volcanoes around the world.

    It is located in Skamania County, Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA.

    The volcano is located in the Cascade Range and is part of the Cascade Volcano Arc.

    On May 18, 1980 there was a big eruption at Mount St. Helens that destroyed nearly 150 square miles of forest and killed 57 people.
