(Seattle, WA)  --  A Portland man is recovering after being rescued from Washington State's Mount Rainier along with three other climbers.  Yevgeniey Krasnitskiy [[ yeh-GEV-nee kraz-NIST-skee ]] and his fellow climbers were stranded for three days at about 13-thousand-500-feet.  High winds blew away and destroyed their equipment, including their tent.  The weather also made it impossible for a helicopter to land to rescue them.  That was until yesterday morning, when a window of good weather opened and allowed a chopper to land and rescue the climbers.  All four were taken to the hospital to be treated for exposure.  Mount Rainier is about 75 miles southeast of Seattle.
