Man Buried When Tunnel on Ore. Mountain Collapses

Rescue crews early Sunday morning will resume the search for a snowboarder who was trapped under a collapsing ice tunnel on Oregon's Mount Hood.

The snowboarder has not been identified. He was traveling with five companions on Saturday afternoon when the tunnel collapsed.

The five were uninjured and called police. They also attempted to dig the man out, but were unable to break through thick snow and ice.

The tunnel was on the White River Glacier, which begins about 6,000 feet up the south side of the mountain.

An airplane was dispatched to survey the area, along with crews from local sheriff's offices.
