CENTRAL OREGON -- An experienced mountain climber from Kennewick, Washington fell several hundred feet to his death on Mount Jefferson Saturday. 65-year-old David Freepons slipped, fell, was unable to stop, hit a rock and died. Due to the dangerous conditions Freepons body was left on the mountain. Jefferson county Search and Rescue Teams are being helped by SAR teams from Deschutes, Linn, Lane and Benton counties. Jefferson County Sergeant David Pond says they have developed a plan to use a helicopter to remove the body to a lower elevation location where there is vehicle access. Pond urges people to be careful outdoors this summer. Pond says the nice weather on weekends has increased search and rescue efforts in several areas of Oregon.
