It was a dramatic fall at Crater Lake. Parks officials say a 27 year old man from New York slipped hundreds of feet down the caldera, that's about halfway down, roughly 400 feet from the lake itself. Crater Lake National Park spokesperson Marsha McCabe describes what happened: "A young man was walking down the path at Sinnott Memorial Overlook and decided to go beyond the rock wall and decided to jump onto the snow, and slid about 300 feet into the caldera.” (KBND): If you could kind of describe it for people who don't know the area." (Marsha) “Yeah, it’s extremely steep and its a steep and slippery place even without the snow because the soil is so loose; but with the snow its even worse, and he slid over snow and gravel and rocks, until he was stopped by two trees he was pinned between. That kept him from going any further.” McCabe says it took emergency crews six hours to pull the man to safety.  He was taken to the Rogue Valley Medical Center.
