      Injured hiker flown off Mount Pilchuck in Snohomish County

      GRANITE FALLS, Wash. (AP) A Snohomish County, search and rescue team has flown a 22-year-old injured hiker off Mount Pilchuck in a helicopter.

      Snohomish County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Brand says the injured man and two companions spent the night on the mountain in the snowline near the 5,100-foot level because weather prevented a helicopter from approaching on Friday.

      Brand say the injured man was flown off the mountain around 7 a.m. on Saturday. His companions are hiking down.

      The injured hiker has been taken to Providence Medical Center in Everett for treatment.

      The man's name and home town were not released.
